The city of Brookhaven is seeking volunteer support when it hosts the 2016 Stream Cleanup Event on Saturday, April 30, from 10 a.m. to noon at the stream at Montclair Elementary School, according to a press release.

The event is being held in recognition of Water Appreciation Day, a full-day celebration of water cleanups around the metro Atlanta area.

When arriving to the cleanup site, volunteers should wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes and long pants, and sunscreen is recommended. If possible, bring any tools that would be helpful in collecting trash. The city will provide everything else needed for the cleanup, including bags, light gardening gloves and bottled water as well as waiver forms.

Participants will be presented with Certificates of Appreciation from the city of Brookhaven.
