20th Annual Creek, River Cleanup

Can you believe it?  This April we will hold our 20th annual spring cleanup of Lockridge Creek.  Join us on Sunday, 25 April 2010, at 9:30 a.m. at the Lockridge Drive and Dennis Avenue intersection and we’ll work our way down the creek to the Rachel Carson Greenway.

Be sure to bring gloves and wear sturdy shoes, long sleeves, and long pants.  Among other trash, it seems someone has thrown tires into the creek, so we’ll be getting down and dirty to pull those out of there (and shame on you, whoever did it!).

We will also be removing invasive vines, so bring loppers and clippers if you want to help save trees.

The rain date for our cleanup will be the following Saturday, 1 May.

If you would like to help with coordinating this event, or need more information, call Brain Morissey, [contact information redacted].  Hope to see you there!   ■
