Stormwater Solutions: Creek Keepers
As part of the Stormwater Management Grant Program, the Friends of Cabin John Creek are developing a Creek Keeper Volunteer Program to help monitor and maintain the health of the mainstem and tributaries of Cabin John Creek. Creek Keepers will provide oversight, leadership, and hands-on work within the section of the creek in which they live. Training is available.
The work of stewards is variable, depending on interest and time, as well as the needs of their segment and their community.
Creek Keepers will serve as FoCJC’s eyes and ears, walking their segment of the creek periodically, noting and reporting new problems, or passing on issues identified by others in the community.
Creek Keepers will help FoCJC coordinate quarterly events within their section, either as part of an all-creek event or one focussed on their segment. Typical stewardship activities include trash clean-ups and invasive plant removal.
Creek Keepers will stay current with activities and developments via the FoCJC e-newsletter and the website: www. cabinjohncreek.org
