Comittee for a Better Environment

Get Dirty for Some Good Clean Fun!

City’s Committee for a Better Environment (CBE) is organizing a community cleanup on Saturday, April 14, 2012.

Volunteers will meet at 9:30am in front of 9615-52nd Avenue (at the end of the Narragansett Parkway). From Rhode Island Avenue, going north (pass the shopping center that includes MOM’s and REI on the right), turn right on Edgewood Rd. Take the first right at Narragansett and go to the end where 52nd Avenue intersects. Turn right and park. Do not turn left and park because it is permit parking only, as is Narragansett.

Volunteers will walk down Narragansett Parkway from Edgewood Rd to the start of the stream at Mangum. Pick up trash on the banks and in the stream from there to 52nd Ave.

Those who don’t mind wading in the water can pick up trash in the stream and on the banks, starting from 52nd Avenue to the railroad tracks. This is a little more of a challenge due to dense brush along the stream, deeper water, etc.

Wear long pants, long-sleeved shirts, and shoes that you don’t mind getting wet. Wear or bring knee-high boots in case you need them. If you have a reusable water bottle, please bring it; we’ll supply the water.

Light refreshments, bags for trash, and gloves will be supplied.
