This event is being sponsored by Cazenovia College's Environmental Club, Fishing Club, Alumni Association, Alpha Lambda Delta First Year Honor Society, Alpha Phi Omega National Community Service Fraternity, Madison County Chapter of Trout Unlimited, Scout Troop 18, CNY Chapter of Izaak Walton League of America, and Cazenovia Preservation Foundation.
The Chittenango Creek Clean-Up has been an annual event since the early 2000s. Thanks to the help of many college students and community members, the event results in about two pick-up loads of trash removed from the creek and its surrounding banks.
