State Rep. Perry Warren (D-31) is partnering with Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful for the Pick Up Pennsylvania fall event to support the International Coastal Cleanup his office announced earlier this month.
The cleanup event will take place at Tyler State Park this upcoming Friday, October 18.
“My office will be hosting volunteers at Tyler State Park to help with cleanup efforts along Neshaminy Creek,” said Warren, (D-Bucks).
“We are joining with the community to help preserve our beautiful landmarks in Bucks County.”
According to the Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful website, the top five types of trash found during the 2018 cleanup effort were:
Cigarette Butts – 19,755
Food Wrappers – 12,343
Plastic Bottles – 8,411
Bottle Caps – 5,435
Tires – 5,935
“Natural resources and open spaces are among our most valuable commodities, and last week I joined 30 other lawmakers in co-sponsoring future legislation that will protect our air quality and reward companies that innovate and produce clean energy. Please help me in taking this simple, yet vital, step to help keep our community’s great outdoors just that – great,” Warren said in a release.
The Tyler State Park cleanup will take place from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 18. Afterwards, park rangers will provide native wildflower seeds for volunteers to spread throughout the park.
Volunteers are asked to meet at the boat house in the park located at 101 Swamp Road at 9 a.m. and can be found by following the signs for the event. Its suggested volunteers wear clothing appropriate for working outdoors while getting potentially dirty and or wet. Waterproof footwear is suggested. Gloves and trash bags will be provided.
For additional information the community is encouraged to contact Warren’s district office in Yardley at 215-493-5420.
