Auburn University Risk Management & Safety (RMS), the Alabama Watershed Stewards, and the AU Water Resources Cetner will host a creek clean-up event on Thursday, February 17th, from 2:00 pm until 4:00 pm along the banks of the campus’ Parkerson Mill Creek.

Students, faculty, staff, and all members of the University community are invited to participate in the event.

A small stream that stretches past Jordan-Hare Stadium, Plainsman Park, and the Beard-Eaves Coliseum on the campus, the Auburn University Parkerson Mill Creek was transformed in 2014 into an area used as outdoor classrooms for environmental research. It is up to the Auburn University community to keep this living stream vibrant, clean, and beautiful.

Volunteers for the event should meet in front of the Wellness Kitchen in the Beard-Eaves Memorial Coliseum parking lot, next to the creek, at 2:00pm.

Gloves and bags will be available for collecting, but participants will be responsible for bringing appropriate footwear, such as rubber boots or waders.

Participants will need to sign a Volunteer Release & Acknowledgement of Risk waiver prior to collecting; forms will be available the day of the event.
