Sweep Up! Rake Up! Pick Up!
Creation care team members Scott and Jackie Jiran recently cleaned the adopted drain in the Crown of Glory neighborhood.

When leaves and grass wash down the storm drain they become pollutants and food for algae.

“A few tools and 10 minutes is all it took. We put the debris in a bucket and then into our home compost pile. Spring debris will go into the trash since it has chemicals from deicers”, said Scott.

Learn how you can clean your own drains and keep our waterways clean at adopt-a-drain.org Learn about how CoG is caring for creation at crownofglory.org/our-green-initiative
