Clear Creek Environmental Foundation’s Annual Clear Creek and Nassau Bay Peninsula Cleanup will be held Saturday, February 23rd. This cleanup is vital to keeping our waters and the peninsula a clean and safe place for people and wildlife. Each year, volunteers pick up tons of waste, including everything from plastic bottles and paper, to washing machines, and abandoned boats.
Please volunteer with us on February 23rd for this year’s cleanup! No need to sign up in advance, just show up at the Nassau Bay peninsula entrance gate to clean the peninsula or at the League City boat ramp to clean up Clear Creek.
Nassau Bay Peninsula – Meet at 8:30am at the peninsula gate. Trash bags and bottled water will be provided, but please bring your own gloves and wear appropriate clothing and shoes for possible wet and muddy conditions. If later works better, you can join volunteers as your schedule allows, grab a trash bag at the entrance, and strike out on your own.
Clear Creek – Gather at the boat ramp at Highway 270 (Egret Bay Blvd) on the League City side at 8:00am. If you go to the Egret Bay ramp starting point, it is important to tell officials on-site that you want to go to the Nassau Bay peninsula as not all boats will work that area.
Cleanup usually lasts until 11:30am on the Peninsula and around noon from the boat ramp, or until you get tired. If you can only work for an hour we would be very grateful. It is a great way to see our beautiful peninsula on a closeup basis. We also welcome a few volunteers with an ATV, SUV and/or trucks to help transfer volunteers (no trash) back and forth. For those volunteers, this is the only time citizens are allowed to drive on the peninsula. For more information contact Mayor Mark Denman, an active volunteer each year, by phone at 281.333.9633 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
