Kansas City (August 24, 2016) The Kansas City Power and Light (KCP&L) announced on August 24, 2016 that the Blue River Watershed Association (BRWA) was one of the 14 organizations selected to receive the 2016 KCP&L Microgrant from more than 70 applicants. The Blue River Watershed Association (BRWA) project KC Clean Streams is designed to be both a direct and indirect learning experience for students in the greater Kansas City Metropolitan Area. Through this service-learning project students plan, promote, and execute a stream litter cleanup for their school inviting parents and the community. By participating in stewardship activities in local streams and rivers, students realize the importance and responsibility of caring for the environment. Clean Streams is the largest school-led stream cleanup event in the Metro Area, typically involving 10,000 people (students & community members) annually. KC Clean Streams launched in 2001 and has impacted thousands of participants over the last 15 years.
