Among the many 2019 Earth Day efforts was the two-hour closing of Coldstream Road in order to remove over 100 bags of trash covering a decade of accumulation. Other volunteers installed kestrel and owl boxes.

This year the weather cooperated spectacularly for our 14th annual Earth Day Event and we wish to thank the 90+ volunteers who made our day a success. Over 115 bags of trash were collected from roadsides, parks and stream banks.

Charlestown’s 13th Annual Earth Day Clean Up was held on April 22nd. The dreary weather didn’t keep approximately 92 adults and children from participating, including the Great Valley Mountain Bike Club, Brownie Troop 41487, scouts working with Trout Unlimited, and the Charlestown Meadows Homeowners Association. Many other individuals worked alone or in small groups along Route 29, Phoenixville Pike, Howell Road, Whitehorse Road, and others. Long time participants from Troop 440 were unavailable this weekend but plan to clean up at Brightside Farm and along Yellow Springs Road next week.
