For over thirty years now, the S.O.N.S. of Lake Erie has worked hard with others including the L.E.A.F (Lake Erie Arboretum at Frontier), PA Sea Grant, Coastal Zone Management and early on with kids from Strong Vincent High School to clean up, restore, improve habitat and reduce sedimentation and pollutants entering Presque Isle Bay. All of the efforts over the years by us and our partners have changed a previously polluted stream into a viable water way to support trout providing a fishing opportunity for inner city residents.

This year on April 7th thirty one SONS volunteers were joined by Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Scout leaders and parents from Troop and Pack #13 headquartered at Elmwood Presbyterian Church in Erie along with members of the Gannon University fishing club and some park neighbors to  clean up Cascade Creek and Frontier Park. The day was cold and clear and for three hours the volunteers gathered garbage bags litter. After the work was done everyone was provided a lunch of hot dogs, coffee, hot chocolate and chips. The stream was stocked with brown trout on April 13th. Photos taken during the clean-up are shown below including the scouts from Troop and Pack #13.
