Clean Jordan Lake's New Adopt-a-Feeder Stream Program!
On Monday June 9th, a group of children and adults led by Rome Fontaine with the Buckingham Home Owners Association (HOA) cleaned up the banks of North Beaver Creek in the Town of Apex. This was the first event in Clean Jordan Lake’s (CJL) new Adopt-A-Feeder Stream program.The goal is to prevent trash from reaching the shoreline by removing trash near its source. North Beaver Creek is a tributary to Beaver Creek which then flows into Jordan Lake The Town of Apex has endorsed Clean Jordan Lake’s idea and will pay for installation of attractive signs at adopted sites to acknowledge the work of participating groups. Rome and his associates previously volunteered for Clean Jordan Lake sponsored cleanups of the lake's shoreline. Rome mentioned, “Environmental issues have always been an important topic for me. I have sponsored an Adopt a Highway route for some 20 years as well as supporting various efforts by groups interested in preserving a clean and safe environment.” The volunteers added that adopting a feeder stream and being responsible for cleaning it up to prevent trash from reaching Jordan Lake were easy steps to take.
If a long term commitment to CJL's Adopt-A-Feeder Stream Program is not possible, small groups can still decide to organize a one-time only cleanup. For either opportunity, send email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
