It is that time again when the grass turns green, the trees and flowers bloom and garbage collects along the stream banks.
Actually, the garbage collects along the stream banks throughout the year. Neighborhood volunteers have historically helped to keep the stream clean of trash by organizing stream clean up efforts. The Earth Day Celebration sponsored by the Durham Parks and Recreation is one such clean up event which FHNA wants to participate in a big way .
WE NEED VOLUNTEERS! ! !
Meet us on Saturday April 25, 2009 at 8 :30 a.m. at the shelter where we'll start with donuts and coffee and then move out through the Park, especially along the stream, to help our fellow neighbors and other volunteers pick up trash. Past clean up efforts have always been successful and we have received repeated recognition from the City for our efforts to clean up both the East Fork Creek in the Park as well as along Lakewood Avenue. This year we are going to concentrate on the stream within the Park boundaries.
COME ONE AND COME ALL! ! ! APRIL 25, 2009 @ 8:30a.m.
Gear : Please wear boots and bring gloves.
Supplies: FHNA w ill provide trash bags and pick up tools.
