Keep Winston-Salem Beautiful (KWSB), N.C.
For the second year in a row the Great American Cleanup (GAC) was part of the Forsyth County Creek Week coordinated by the City’s Storm Water Department, other county municipalities, the Library, Cooperative Extension Service and many other groups including of course KWSB.
March 15-22 events were held each day including creek crawls, fishing demonstrations, movies, book readings, photo contests, educational activities leading up to a large cleanup on March 22. On that final day approximately 1,000 volunteers county wide removed over 16,000 lbs. of trash and recyclables from local waterways, streets, parks and schools. Volunteers were provided Cici’s pizza, Krispy Kreme doughnuts and Pepsi drinks. It was a VERY successful and fun week!
