CREW 222

Bear Creek Yacht Club organizes recurring creek cleanup events under the CREW 222 Program. 

It's as simple as 2-2-2

All we ask is two hours of your time (2), on the second Saturday (2) of every other month (2) = CREW 222. (Feb, Apr, Jun, Aug, Oct, Dec)

If you can spare two hours on a Saturday morning, please join us, and you'll be amazed at what can be achieved in such a short time. 

  • We encourage companies along our waterways to sponsor company cleanup events. If your company has Community Service events, please keep us in mind and contact us to get involved.

We strive to have at least one cleanup location on each waterway we serve (Fahrens, Black Rascal, and Bear Creek). We have volunteers as young as seven years old and volunteers who have long ago retired. 

Join us for our next cleanup, contact us.

We have three types of volunteers, and all are critical to our success in cleaning up our creeks: 

Cleanup Volunteers – these volunteers are the heart of the organization. Without them, we wouldn't exist.

  •  No special skills or tools are needed – just a desire to revitalize our creeks to their former glory.
  •  We supply gloves, bags, and trash grabbers on the cleanup day.

If this opportunity suits you, contact us. 

CREW Leaders/CREW Captains – This experienced group of volunteers is the on-the-ground coordinators of the CREW 222 efforts. 

  • They lead groups on the day of the cleanup. 
  • They locate high-value cleanup spots (campsites or dumping grounds for household items.) 
  • They are also responsible for safely removing needles and other potentially dangerous items. 
  • They keep track of the volunteers on the cleanup to ensure they are safe and return to the collection spot at the end of the day. 
  • They ensure all trash gathered is properly placed staging area for safe removal. 

If this opportunity suits you, contact us. 

Back-Office CREW  – We have a small group that keeps all administrative functions. This volunteer opportunity helps with grant writing, answering correspondence, maintaining the website, taking pictures at cleanups, etc.
