Why is the event needed?
BCCD is a way to celebrate and protect lakes and streams in Champaign County by engaging volunteers to pitch in and clean. Litter looks bad; it clogs storm drains, causing local flooding; and it ends up in receiving streams, harming aquatic life. This event helps remind us to be responsible citizens and put trash in its place.

What should I wear?
Dress to work outside and make sure your attire does not include open-toed shoes. Some projects may involve getting into the creek. Participants taking on those tasks should wear waterproof boots. Please bring a refillable water bottle and wear your orange Boneyard shirt from a previous year if you already have one.
