Wheeling, WV 26003 United States

This may not be as well-seen a spot by our residents and out-of-town visitors, but the creek bank that borders the parking lot behind Elm Grove's Glo-Tone Cleaners and continues up to the WesBanco drive-thru could use some attention. Bring buckets and trash pickers.

Volunteer Wheeling: Chicken Neck Hill Cleanup

October 30 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

It's been almost exactly one year since we did a cleanup along Chicken Neck. The weeds are creeping up and some of the bank is slipping down into the hill just a bit, making the sidewalk ugly and less accessible to dog walkers, joggers and strollers along that part of National Road. This effort will be easier if you can bring flat shovels, pruners, and brooms. Electric leaf blowers would be a bonus! Bring your buckets.

Volunteer Wheeling: Wheeling Creek Cleanup (Lumbar Ave).

November 20 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Last fall, we picked up an incredible amount of debris along Wheeling Creek bank behind the Elm Grove Crossing Mall (where Riesbeck's and Tractor Supply are located). Now it's time to tackle the other side of the creek. This is a bit more challenging a task because the bank is a little steep. Please join us if you're up to the challenge!
