Volunteers will travel along Chartiers Creek via canoe or kayak and remove debris that has accumulated along the shorelines. We look forward to this event every year and we hope to see you on the water! Read below to learn more details and register.
You will need to provide your own canoe/kayak. We strongly recommend bringing a canoe rather than a kayak.
You are responsible for shuttling your canoes/kayaks so please plan accordingly. We will start our event at 9AM!
We will be meeting at the Crafton Caliente Pizza & Draft House Parking Lot at 8AM to begin shuttling vehicles.
Address: 288 W Steuben St, Pittsburgh, PA 15205
We will be pulling boats and ending at the McKees Rocks Aldi parking lot.
Address: 114 Chartiers Ave, McKees Rocks, PA 15136
Please wear closed toe shoes and dress appropriately for the weather! (NO flip-flops) We recommend something that dries quickly since you will likely get wet during this event. All volunteers must wear a life jacket while in a canoe or kayak. If you do not have a life jacket, please let us know and we will bring one for you.
We will provide coffee and light refreshments for breakfast, snacks and water during the event, and there will be pizza at the end! Please be sure to bring your water bottle and any snacks/lunch you may require during our float.
Come help us pick up litter and debris along the creek. Tell your friends, and let's get a small flotilla of canoes and kayaks on the water!
