F.E. WARREN AIR FORCE BASE, Wyo. --
Although summer solstice has not officially begun, residents and employees of F.E. Warren Air Force Base, Wyoming, have already kicked off their summer activities, including the 2nd Annual Stream Cleanup on May 24, 2018.
A group from the 90th Civil Engineering Squadron team met up on a sunny afternoon near Gate 2 for their first official cleanup in 2018.
“Last year was our first time doing the stream cleanup, and we met on four occasions during the summer months,” said Nicole Ng, 90th CES water program manager. “After last year I decided the base had a need for cleanup teams. To hopefully meet this need better, the goal this year is to meet bi-weekly during the summer months.”
The cleanup started as an effort within CES, but F.E. Warren needs for it to become greater.
“I know why I come out here,” said Dana Gage 90th CES housing program manager. “I do this because one, I can get out on a beautiful day enjoy Wyoming and company of co-workers. And two, I do this because we need to give back to the earth.”
After the success of the 2nd Annual Stream Cleanup, Ng hopes this will become a base-wide event with employees and community participants as a whole.
The 2018 cleanup days will last between one and two hours each, and typically all projects started will be completed the same day.
To get involved with the 2018 Stream Cleanup, contact Nicole Ng at 307-773-4359. It is a great opportunity for units and the community to come together and make F.E. Warren beautiful.
