Bear Creek cleanup has been rescheduled to May 18. Volunteers are needed from 9 a.m. to noon and will meet at the parking lot next to the Admiral Coontz Recreation Center. Flooding has caused the 1819 Hannibal Stream Team to reschedule the cleanup. Gloves and supplies will be provided, along with snacks and water. A parent or guardian must accompany participants 11 and under. A parent and guardian must sign a waiver for anyone under 18. The 1819 Hannibal Stream Team was formed last year to help protect Hannibalâ??s many waterways. It was so named because Hannibal was founded in 1819. The Missouri Stream Team program was established almost 25 years ago by the Missouri Department of Conservation, the Department of Natural Resources and the Conservation Federation of Missouri.
