Greener Codorus Initiative 2022 Season
May 25 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Join us for weekly vegetation maintenance to keep harmful herbicides from being sprayed along the Codorus Creek in York City.
Our 2022 season is upon us! Come out and chop some vegetation along the Codorus Creek. In the past, the Army Corps of Engineers would spray herbicides to keep a clear line of sight to visually inspect their levies and flood control walls. However, for the last 8 years we’ve stopped those harmful herbicides from being sprayed by manually controlling vegetative growth keeping the Codorus Creek in downtown York GREEN. It is very rewarding to be a part of this great work.
- 1st & 3rd Monday 9:00-11:00AM and 2nd & 4th Wednesday 5:30-7:30PM. April – November.
- Meet at Foundry Plaza Codorus Boat Basin. 226 W. Philadelphia St. York, PA 17401
- Please wear long pants, shoes with good ankle support and bring your own water bottle.

Please do not come out if it’s wet or raining, we cannot do this work in wet conditions. Schedule is subject to change. Make up days due to weather or other events will be posted as necessary.
