PULLMAN – Stream cleanup this weekend will kick off Pullman’s participation in the Adopt-A-Stream Program. The WSU Center for Civic Engagement (CCE) is helping provide volunteers for the seventh annual cleanup sponsored by the Palouse-Clearwater Environmental Institute (PCEI) and the City of Pullman.
 
Cleanup will be 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, April 9, starting at Spring Street Park at the corner of Spring and College streets. Food and drink will be provided at 2 p.m. by local businesses. Volunteers will clean the banks of Paradise Creek, the South Fork of the Palouse River, and Missouri Flat Creek.
 
Participants are reminded to dress for the weather and wear sturdy shoes, gloves, sunglasses, sun block and whatever else is necessary.
 
WSU students can register through the CCE or on SLPro to get volunteer credit hours.
 
The cleanup marks the kickoff of the Pullman Adopt-A-Stream Program, a way for businesses, community groups and individuals to sign on as year-long stream stewards.
