Davenport Garbage Gobble (Nov)

Pictures of volunteers cleaning up during the 2016 Garbage GobbleThe Garbage Gobble is a great opportunity to protect our water resources by helping us cleanup materials dumped or carried by wind and water to our local creeks and streams. 

Aside from leaving the cleanup with a sense of pride in a job well done, participants in the cleanup will have fun, make new friends, and receive a free t-shirt for their efforts to help us improve our community.
