3-25-2017 (snow date!) Early Spring Cleanup

Join us for our Early Spring Cleanup in Glen Providence Park! This is the first of our three main volunteer days we have scheduled this year: the next two are CRC Watersheds Annual Streams Cleanup on April 22, and National Public Lands Day on September 30. We also have regular Invasive Plant Removal days – see our 2017 Schedule of Events for more information!

Early Spring Clean-up!

Saturday, March 25
Rain/snow date Sunday, March 26
9:30 – 11:00am
Glen Providence Park – main entrance

 

Early spring is a great time to tackle trash that has blown into odd spots, before vegetation grows! Volunteers will be treated to yummy coffee and some pastries generously donated by Seven Stones Cafe! 

Logistics:

  • Meet at the Glen Providence Park main entrance on West State Street in Media at 9:30 am.
  • Bring gloves if you have them. We have a few pairs left from last year’s CRC Streams Cleanup.
  • We recommend long pants and long sleeves to protect against poison ivy, ticks, and thorns.

Rain & snow plan:

Our rain/snow date is Sunday, March 26. If the weather is not clear, or if there is still too much snow on the ground, we will post on our website and facebook by 8:45 am Saturday advising whether we will use the rain date.

 

Observant readers may note that we originally scheduled our Early Spring Cleanup for Saturday, March 18. That was before Snowstorm Stella… there is no point doing a cleanup if debris is still hidden under snow! Let’s hope the snow is gone by March 25…
