Bristol employees get hands dirty; clean up local creek
On September 27, Bristol employees stepped out to help clean a stretch of Chester Creek as a part of the Anchorage Waterways Council (AWC) Adopt-A-Stream program. The event was an opportunity to help protect local streams while supporting the community.
Volunteers pulled 10 bags of trash as well as invasive plants out of the creek, also removing numerous abandoned items. In addition, the team cleared storm drains and identified areas that will benefit from erosion control measures in the future. Cherie Northon, Executive Director of the AWC, thanked employees for their dedication. “A few people can make a great difference,” she said.
Bristol is an official sponsor of the AWC and is proud of its continued partnership with the locally-based group. Over the past several years Bristol has provided support for several events, including the annual Creek Cleanup and Rubber Duck Drive. The AWC is a non-profit organization whose mission is to protect, restore, and enhance the waterways, wetlands and associated uplands of Anchorage.
