The Clear Creek Environmental Foundation is seeking volunteers for its 25th annual Clear Creek Cleanup event Feb. 11, CCEF President Mike Stone said.

Boats will take off starting at 8 to 8:30 a.m. from the League City Boat Ramp located under the Egret Bay Boulevard bridge until 2 p.m.

The foundation aims to remove trash from the creek to preserve the health of the local ecosystem and beautify the area, Stone said.

"I’d like to think we’re helping the wildlife," Stone said. "Everyone should be able to enjoy the water and not have to worry about [trash]."

The event is open to individual and group volunteers of all ages. Volunteers are recommended to bring work gloves, rubber boots and warm clothing.

"I believe in safety first," Stone said. "I wanna make sure everyone is safe and has a good time."

The CCEF will provide bags for volunteers to collect trash with and will bring in a barge loaded with trash gathered at one of the organization's pre-event cleaning efforts.

Every boat will be equipped with life jackets, drinking water and first aid kits. Local boat owners are also invited to volunteer with their vessel, Stone said.

Volunteers will receive a free T-shirt and lunch for participation after the cleanup concludes.
