Summer Cleanup Coming Up

Saturday, August 8th, 9am to Noon

Dear Friend,
Cleanup VolunteersPlease join us in the cool of the morning on Saturday, August 8th, for a safe trash cleanup in Lincoln Park. Don't come on time.  Arrive at a staggered time between 9 and 9:30. To protect you and us from Covid-19, we ask that you provide your own gloves, beverage, and wear a mask at the sign-in table. We will provide hand sanitizer, garbage bags, and pre-sanitized pickers. You may be walking in wooded areas on uneven terrain so we suggest sturdy walking shoes, long pants, and shirt sleeves to protect yourself. Masks protect you and us. Please wear one.
