Keep Killeen Beautiful needs some helping hands to get a little dirty to help keep a local waterway clean.

The annual waterway clean-up event happens on September 22nd at Long Branch Park beginning at 8:00 AM. According to a press release from the City Of Killeen:

This annual event removes trash and debris that has blown or washed into the creek. Litter can contaminate the waterway and be washed downstream harming wildlife and water quality. Removing pollutants like plastic, paper, cans and cigarette butts from the banks of the creek not only beautifies the park but also protects our water supply.

Volunteers will meet at the park pavilion near the spray pad for a group photo and to gather supplies. They will then spread out along the creek to collect litter for proper disposal. No registration is required for this event. For more details, contact The City Of Killeen or visit their website.
