2020 Riverfront Clean Ups

Volunteers will clip honeysuckle limbs from bushes, cut down the remaining trunks with handsaws and carry the brush to an area in the park. All tools and work gloves will be provided. The honeysuckle stems are not prickly and the brush isn’t heavy. This is a family-friendly activity, so children are welcome too. Please dress for the weather! Close-toed shoes, like tennis shoes, are recommended. Groups of 4 – 40 volunteers are encouraged to sign up for one of the Riverfront cleanups listed above by calling 260-427-6408.
