Flint River Stewardship Day

 Stewardship Month

#Stewardshipmonth2020 #Quaranclean

Stewardship Day goes virtual in Month-long event to cleanup and beautify our local waterways and natural areas.

Stewardship Month 2020

View our Press Release 

Every year, we look forward to having hundreds of volunteers fan out across the watershed to tidy up our public spaces – picking up trash, building rain barrels, repairing trails, and maintaining rain gardens.  But this year, in response to the Covid-19 crisis, the Flint River Watershed Coalition (FRWC) is switching gears for our Annual Stewardship day.

This year, we’re going virtual for the entire month of April!

How to Participate: Make a difference #alonetogether in your neighborhood. What does this mean?

  • While maintaining social distancing guidelines and safety measures, regularly head outside to take small or large steps to improve your neck of the woods. It doesn’t have to be every day, but you can do as many activities as you like!
  • Potential activities: picking up trash while you enjoy a walk through your neighborhood, planting trees or native wildflowers, or connect with your local park to offer assistance in spring cleanup activities. Take on a bigger project such as making a rain barrel or compost bin or repurposing old or broken items at home instead of throwing them away. The sky truly is the limit!
  • Log your activities! We want to hear what you’ve been up to. Join our Stewardship month event on Facebook. Tag your social media photos and post with #Stewardshipmonth2020 #Quaranclean and #FlintRiver. Fill out our online survey  so we can tally all the great works completed throughout the month. Or email adarzi@flintriver.org with any updates and pictures of your projects and/or trash collected.
  • Regularly check our Facebook and Instagram pages – we’ll provide tips and inspiration each day throughout the month, and recognize the amazing efforts of our participants.

 

 This event is not limited to those living in the Flint River Watershed.

Anyone who wants to virtually get in on the fun is welcome to join our effort and is eligible for our fabulous prizes (see below).

All participants will be invited to a volunteer appreciation lunch at a date and location to be determined, where they can claim their thank-you gift – a native tree sapling donated by GM and Living Lands and Waters.

Any unique, quirky, unexpected, or outright weird finds will be entered for a chance to win our annual Golden Gloves Award. Items are put to a public vote in January, and the winner is awarded their trophy at the FRWC Annual Celebration at the end of January, 2021.
