Location:  Across the road from Princess Lousie Falls, St. Joseph Blvd.

Taylor Creek was one of the streams we monitored last year and we found a lot of garbage along the shores. This stream is divided at this reach by St Joseph Blvd, we will be meeting at 9am across the road from the Princess Lousie Falls. This is a continuation effort from our previous removal event, as density of balsam is high in this area.
