Spring Broad Creek Clean Up
March 21, 2017
Our spring clean up of the Broad Creek was a great success! 77 volunteers, both local and visitors, joined in to help remove over 350# of trash and marine debris from the Broad Creek. Interesting finds: white wall tire, deck chair, trash can, buckets, a cast net (thank you "Kids in Kayaks" alum Caleb Altman!), fishing line, buoys, seat cushions and more. All no longer a threat to our local wildlife. Big thanks to our sponsors: Mike Overton and Outside Hilton Head, Beaufort County Public Works, Kroger, Publix, and American Rivers. Thank you to my incredible teammates at Outside for helping out today: JC McCune, Nicklas Bearden, Kurt Hansen, C.j. Schmelzer, Taylor Johnson, Haley Lewis, Gerard Love, and Darci Everett. Thank you Holly Brown Feltner! Thank you to the Women's Lacrosse Team from Allegheny College - all 24 of you - for taking time on your Spring Break to give back. Thanks to the crew from Under Armour for joining us again to help out. Thank you to all the students and parents from May River High School who stopped by to lend a hand. Thank you Joan McDonough from the The Island Packet for stopping by and for your sincere interest in the work the Foundation is doing. THANK YOU to all the volunteers who despite the stiff breeze came out to support our event! The great success of our event was all because of you.
