Muhlenberg readies Allentown parks for spring

1 March

Alpha Iota (Muhlenberg) — Brothers from the Alpha Iota chapter at Muhlenberg College joined in an effort to clean up debris along Cedar Creek in Allentown, Penn.

In an article from The Morning Call:
The waterway that gives Allentown’s Cedar Creek Park its name is on the cusp of its annual explosion of life and color.

Soon, bulbs will emerge from the earth. Buds will flower into pastels. Branches will bend under the weight of green leaves. Because such beauty reliably returns to the creek each spring, many people take it for granted.

But not Andrew Kleiner, nor the two dozen volunteers he recruited to pick trash from the banks of the creek Saturday afternoon. Plastic garbage bags in hand, they braved blustery winter weather to make their way through the thickets and weeds that catch much of the human debris in storm runoff.

Sam Kenney, Muhlenburg ’11, worked alongside a handful of his Alpha Tau Omega fraternity brothers, described what he found: “A little bit of medical waste and some clothing, [but] mostly plastic bottles and cans.”
