Description

Since 1991, neighbors and community members have met once a year to collect trash in both East and West Bouldin Creek. Together we have removed enough car parts and tires to build a small fleet of cards, carpets and appliances to furnish several homes, cans and bottles to open a convenience store and styrofoam to last quite a few lifetimes. In addition, innumerable pieces of found art made it home with their proud finders.

 

We'll meet at 8:30 am at the entrance to Nicholas Dawson Park on the corner of Gibson and South First for coffee and snacks provided by neighborhood restaurants, then send teams of people to different parts of the two creeks. Around 11:30 am we meet back in N. Dawson Park for lunch, again courtesy of our business friends.


Gloves and trash bags will be provided. Please dress in long-sleeved shirts and long pants to guard against possible contact with poison ivy, and wear sturdy shoes. Be prepared to get muddy and dirty and have a very good time. Kids and dogs welcome.
