BENTLEYVILLE – Rep. Bud Cook (R-Washington/Fayette) announced today that the April 7, trout stocking event with Bethlehem Center Middle School students has postponed due to forecasted inclement weather.

The event has been rescheduled for Friday, April 21, from 10 a.m. to noon, at the Ten Mile Creek Access in Marianna, and will now be included as part of Cook’s district-wide 2017 Great American Clean Up of PA activities.

“I am hosting this all-day, district-wide event on April 21 to offer an opportunity for our outstanding community and local organizations to partner with us in making the 49th Legislative District clean again,” said Cook. “I will also be participating in the trout stocking event in Marianna with Beth-Center middle school students as they complete a field trip requirement as part of their Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission education curriculum. I’m inviting everyone to come out to Ten Mile Creek and support our young people as they contribute in sustaining our region’s abundant creeks, streams, rivers and wildlife.”

Local groups and organizations can participate in the 2017 Great American Cleanup of PA by picking up litter and trash along roadsides, streams, parks, forests and neighborhoods. Additional event ideas include holding recycling events for hard-to-dispose of items like tires and appliances, creating or enhancing green areas by planting plants, bulbs and trees, and removing or painting over graffiti that devalues neighborhoods.

As part of these events, the Department of Environmental Protection and Pennsylvania Waste Industries Association are sponsoring Let’s Pick It Up PA – every day from April 18 through May 8. During this time, trash collected at registered events can be taken to participating landfills and receive free or reduced cost disposal with prior approval.

For registration or more information on Cook’s Great American Cleanup of PA event on April 21, please contact the Bentleyville district office at (724) 669-2242.
