Join us for our Early Spring Cleanup in Glen Providence Park!  Depending on conditions with the stream level, mud, and remaining snow, we will have a few possible projects including those listed below- you can choose where you want to help!

  • Invasives Removal!  Help keep the trails clear and give the native plants some room to grow.
  • Large trash: Now that the snow is melting, we will check to see if there are any remaining tires or other large items that were hidden last year.
  • Trail Cleanup: Of course, there is always trash clean-up- early spring is a good time to tackle trash that has blown into odd spots, before the vegetation grows!
  • Stream Cleanup: Those with waterproof foot gear can help clear any debris from the stream bank.


Rain date:  Sunday, March 16

Please register by emailing FriendsoftheGlen[AT]gmail[DOT]com so we can plan for project teams. 



Meet at the Glen Providence Park main entrance on West State Street in Media at 9:00 am. Bring gloves if you have them.  Additional gloves generously provided by CRC Watersheds Association.  We recommend long pants and long sleeves to protect against poison ivy, ticks, and thorns.

  • If you’d like to tackle trash along the streambank, wear water proof boots!
  • If you’d like to help remove invasives, bring pruners if you have them.
  • If you’d like to help remove large trash, bring a shovel!

Rain plan:
Our rain date is Sunday, March 16 at 9:00 am. If the weather is not clear, we will post here and on our facebook wall by 8:45 am Saturday advising whether we will use the rain date.

  1. Clean up is on — this is just a passing drizzle and we have a good forecast for the rest of the morning. Warming and sunny!
