Annapolis Green is organizing a cleanup at the Ellen O. Moyer Back Creek Nature Park on Saturday, July 26, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The cleanup is a partnership with Keep America Beautiful, and one of a series of 60 projects across the country sponsored by Bud Light called “Do Good. Have Fun.” Consumers 21 years of age or older can sign up for the Back Creek project by visiting upforwhatever.com. Advance online registration is required to participate.
Following the “Do Good” cleanup at the park, the “Have Fun” portion of the day will be held at Port Annapolis Marina next door. Port Annapolis is donating its pavilion space for the celebration that will feature Bud Light and lunch for volunteers. Port Annapolis is a certified Maryland Clean Marina.
“Back Creek Nature Park is a hidden jewel,” said Elvia Thompson, Co-Founder of Annapolis Green. “It features demonstration plantings and interpretive exhibits that show how to control stormwater, along with walking trails, picnic areas, and lovely views of the creek. The City of Annapolis doesn’t have the funds to give the park the attention it deserves. This project will bring people together, primarily young people, to give a helping hand while they learn about our environment. And of course, they’ll have fun, too.”
