Help clean up Gillies Creek

March 20, 2013 9:02pm
The Chesapeake Bay Foundation is seeking volunteers to help remove trash and debris from Gillies Creek in Richmond. Cleanup dates are Sunday, March 24, and Saturday, April 6, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. both days.
Litter and debris that wash into streams and the James River not only are eyesores but can block flows and cause water quality problems for fish, birds, and other wildlife.
Volunteers should meet at the old Fulton Street Bridge off of Stony Run Road between Government and Williamsburg roads and follow the signs to the horseshoe pits. Volunteers should wear clothes they don’t mind getting wet or muddy and dress in layers. CBF will provide tools, snacks, and water.
This is a family-friendly event; children are welcome if supervised by their responsible adult. For more information and to RSVP, contact Aimee Bushman at 804/780-1392 or

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
