Event Description

The City of Davenport's Duck Creek Wild and the Partners of Scott County Watersheds are hosting an Xstream Cleanup event "IN" and along Duck Creek on Saturday, October 12th. 

The cleanup will take place starting at Fairmount Wetlands, adjacent to the Fairmount Library, and ending at Duck Creek near Brady St.

Volunteers with canoes and canoeing experience are welcome and encouraged to participate, as we will be cleaning from within Duck Creek and along it banks. 

This is a great opportunity to enjoy and protect our water resources. 

Aside from leaving the cleanup with a sense of pride in a job well done, participants in the cleanup will have fun, make new friends, and receive a free t-shirt for their efforts to help us improve our community.

Who can Participate?
We are looking for up to 10 kayaks or canoes and 20 individuals willing to get wet to assist with waterway efforts and up to 20 individuals to assist with stream bank efforts. Individuals working in the creek must be 18 years of age or older, and must wear a PFD in waters about the knee (PFD not provided).

Description of Project:
Volunteers will be picking up debris adjacent to, along and in Duck Creek. Streambank debris and liter pickup consists of walking, bending and placing wastes removed directly from the creek and transport wastes collected to a disposal point. Some debris removal may require additional effort and should only be performed by those able to do so. Volunteers will receive safety instruction prior to the cleanup. 

Other Details:
Volunteers should wear clothing appropriate for weather conditions and to get dirty; rubber boots, waders or old gym shoes and a personal flotation device as needed. Volunteers may also want to bring a plastic bag or towel to cover the interior of the car in the event participants  become wet or muddy during the cleanup.
