Boneyard Creek Community Day

Drains to Creek Medallion

Boneyard Creek Community Day is a way to celebrate and protect our local waterways through cleanup and educational activities.  The annual event which was first held in 2006, is a collaboration between the City of Urbana, the City of Champaign, the Village of Savoy, the University of Illinois and a number of other community groups, organizations and businesses.  More information about the annual event, its partners, its sponsors and volunteer opportunities can be found at the Boneyard Creek Community Day website, www.boneyardcreek.org.

Since 2016, Urbana has staffed a remote cleanup site based at the new Boneyard Creek Crossing park at Griggs Street and Race Street.

The 2020 community-wide event will occur on Saturday April 18th, with a rain date on Saturday May 2nd.

Here are some photos of Urbana's 2017 Boneyard cleaning crew:
