UPDATE: Due to a stormy forecast on Saturday, we've decided to reschedule for Sunday afternoon (1-3PM). If you're unable to attend on Sunday, but would still like to help clean up, please reach out to Abbey at firstname.lastname@example.org or 610-384-0600 x148 and we'll be sure to get you supplies. (Since the extended forecast for next week looks crummy as well, we opted for Sunday, which looks quite nice, rather than take our chances with next Saturday, our original rain date.)
Join Caln Township Parks and Recreation for our annual Caln Community Clean Up Day (Sponsored by Midway Grill)! Individuals and groups are encouraged to attend. Supplies and lunch certificates to Midway Grill will be provided so please RSVP so we can ensure enough for all. Starting location: Caln Municipal Building (253 Municipal Drive, Thorndale) RSVP at at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0f4eadae2ea4facf8-caln1
Contact Abbey at email@example.com or 610-384-0600 x148 with any questions.
Caln Township is thrilled, once again, to have the opportunity to improve our parks and the environment by planting a riparian buffer along Valley Run. Riparian buffers are vegetated strips along streambanks which helps protect the stream from pollution and erosion. They also provide important habitat for wildlife and shade which help keep stream water cool for fish.
A variety of native tree and shrub species will be provided through the Chester County Conservation District and the Keystone Ten Million Trees initiative.
Volunteers needed! Bring work gloves, shovels, and a willingness to get a little muddy!
Date: Saturday, April 2, 2022 (rain date - April 3)
Time: 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Location: Caln Municipal Park - 253 Municipal Drive, Thorndale
Spaces are limited so registration is required. Sign up at: www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0F4EADAE2EA4FACF8-caln
Here are some pictures of our planting event held last November in Lloyd Park:
“Keeping Our Waterways Clean!”
Did you know the most common litter in streams is household trash?
-Plastic bags, bottles, food wrappers, and many other items can quickly be transported by wind and/or surface water runoff during storm events (storm water).
-Products such as cleaners, lawn fertilizers, and vehicle fluids are often inadvertently collected into storm drains. Organic material such as leaves, sticks, gravel and grass clippings also can be carried by storm water into the municipal system.
-These materials often make their way into nearby waterways and eventually the ocean. These are all forms of water pollution, and pose a great risk to aquatic life, water quality, and even our own health and safety.
During the week of June 21st, join your neighbors and local businesses (while maintaining social distancing!) and help keep Caln Clean!
-Submit photos and/or a simple description of what you and your household or business cleaned up on the Township’s Facebook page.
-Please remember to dispose of waste in an appropriate manner. We encourage the use of reusable or bio-degradable containers and/or bags! Together we can keep our community clean!
