Fall Cleanup 2019

On November 2nd, Friends of the Kayaderossearas volunteers met at Kelley Park, divided into groups and picked up trash and tires at multiple sites along the banks of the creek. The cleanup was a success, as many items of garbage were removed. A significant portion of the cleanup items were also recycled.

Pedal the Creek 2019

Friends of the Kayaderosseras hosted the second annual Pedal the Creek bike ride on Saturday, September 7, 2019. Participants rode from the Brookhaven Park Pavilion, alongside the upper portions of the creek, and through Greenfield, Milton, Porter Corners, and Rock City Falls. 14, 30 and 50 mile rides were hosted. Lunch was provided after the ride.

Thank you to our sponsors that made this event possible: T-Shirt Graphics, Stewart’s Shops, My Other Garden, and Hannaford.  And a big thanks to the Town of Greenfield for all of their support and for hosting our event.

Wading for Tires 2019

Thank you to all the volunteers who helped out at our Wading for Tires summer clean-up. This year’s hearty crew waded upstream from Northline bridge and discovered, dug-up, and dragged-out 26 tires from the bottom of the Creek, including one ginormous tractor tire. In addition to the tires, the crew of 14 volunteers collected all sorts of trash and debris, filling 3 canoes and 4 kayaks nearly to the tipping point (it could be that one boat went a bit past that point). Thanks again to all for the continued support!
