A number of volunteers spent the day cleaning up Clear Creek in southeast Harris County. The group was a part of the Texas Adopt-a-Beach Spring Cleanup program. The volunteers collected nearly two tons of trash and planted 3,000 sprigs to stop soil erosion in the creek.

Volunteers said they didn't mind getting dirty as long as could make a difference.
