A volunteer cleanup of Wolf Pen Creek Park on Saturday will kick off the City of College Station’s Adopt-A-Greenway Program, which encourages area neighborhoods, churches, businesses and other groups to help maintain the local greenway system.
Saturday’s event will be from 9 a.m. to noon, with a free lunch provided by SONIC®. Participants will help clean and beautify Wolf Pen Creek by picking up litter and planting trees. Supplies will be provided by Keep Brazos Beautiful.
To preregister as a volunteer, go to cstx.gov/adoptagreenway. Participants will be required to sign a liability waiver the day of the event. Volunteers should wear closed-toe shoes, long pants and work gloves.
Greenways are protected open spaces that follow natural features such as creeks and rivers. Some greenways link neighborhoods and parks through trails, and others are located along utility or road corridors. Other College Station’s greenways can be found along Bee Creek, Lick Creek, Spring Creek, Carters Creek and their tributaries.
