Annual Park Cleanup
Please Reserve This Date: Saturday, April 15, 2017 — 9:00 AM to 12:00 Noon
(This is a week after the official date, so as to not conflict with annual Wilmington Trail Club hike event.)
We will continue the volunteer work that we did last year, digging out invasive, thorny Multiflora Rose and Autumn Olive shrubs from a township greenway park meadow. The past cleanup site’s section, looks great!
Full size shovels, prying tools, loppers, pruners, and a few wheelbarrows will be very helpful. As the invasive plants are removed, they’ll need to be carried to the brook side. A pair or sturdy work gloves are most important . (We have some pairs to borrow.) Long pants and sturdy boots are also highly recommended. Don’t forget sun protection, suntan lotion and bug spray if you wish. Water, pretzels, and apples will be provided.
There will again be a choice of participation tee-shirts from the: “London Britain Land Trust” or “Christina River Watershed Cleanup” or CRWC Shopping Bags. Please contact April as soon as possible, to indicate your participation or for more info.
