Conestee Clean-ups!

Upcoming Litter Sweep Dates:
´╗┐December 17, January 21, February 18, and March 4


Conestee Clean-ups!

Conestee Nature Preserve is so fortunate to have miles of the picturesque Reedy River flowing through the center of the Preserve. Unfortunately, the river just so happens to be a super highway for litter to make its way onto their banks.

Together, we can work to clean up that litter and keep Conestee clean!

During a recent rain event, a large amount of litter washed into Oak Grove Lake. Thankfully, Greenville County Litter Ends Here has a trash-trapping device, called a WaterGoat, in place.

As you can see from this picture, the device stopped a lot of trash from washing into the lake. Unfortunately, the device was so overwhelmed by the amount of litter, some trash made it into the lake. Our crews were able to get the trash that made it past the device by using a boat.

In all, about 1,600 lbs. of trash washed into this lake during this single storm.

Thank you to the wonderful students and parents of Veritas Preparatory School! Students cleaned locations at Lake Conestee Park and around Oak Grove Lake with Greenville County Litter Ends Here.

Lake Robison Day!
Lake Robison Day!

Greenville County Litter Ends Here was thrilled to join the Lake Robinson Day event! This was a day to educate the public about where your drinking water comes from, how to protect it, and how daily actions can impact the environment!

Litter Ends Here educated kids about the harmful effects of litter with their educational litter scavenger hunt, a number of people signup up to volunteer with the program, and they held a litter cleanup during the event!

Imagine a Day Without Water Litter Cleanup
Imagine a Day Without Water Litter Cleanup

Did you know litter and trash can have a huge impact on water quality? The EPA reports that most aquatic trash comes from land based activities, and something like a cigarette butt that ends up in a stream contains plastic that will remain in the environment for many years.

Thank you to Greer CPW and the City of Greer and all the volunteers for helping with this important mission!
