Sat 4/20 @ 1-3PM
It’s sad but we just aren’t very respectful of our environment. A walk around virtually any outdoor space will yield mountains of discarded fast food wrappers, Styrofoam cups, plastic bags, bottles and worse. This debris often gets swept into storm drains and ends up in the lake, potentially polluting our source of drinking water.
It may seem overwhelming but joining a cleanup really can make a difference. That’s why he Doan Brook Watershed Partnership is hosting a series of Saturday cleanups around its east-side territory.
This week you can join them for a cleanup in Dugway/Forest Hill Park. Meet at the Forest Hill parking lot off Lee Road in Cleveland Heights by the baseball diamonds, and spend a couple of hours helping pick up trash.
You can arrive as early as 12:30 to sign in, where you can get your gloves, trash bags and snacks. Wear sturdy shoes/boots and clothes that cover your legs and arms. Individuals, families and groups of all types — neighbors, scouts, school groups — are welcome. Advance registration is encouraged for large groups. Go to doanbrookpartnership.org.
