Ambler Park Stream Sweep
Where: Tent at Fairhill Partners Parking Lot
Litter is a persistent problem in our parks and green spaces, where it is both harmful to the environment and unsightly. Litter such as plastic bags, bottles, food wrappers, Styrofoam, and coffee cups that gets discarded on our streets can enter local waterways through storm drains and ultimately end up in Lake Erie, our source of drinking water. We organize cleanup days in the spring to help maintain our watersheds and green spaces and to give volunteers an opportunity to demonstrate how much they value our urban parks, streams, and waterways.
To celebrate Earth Day, we are hosting a cleanup event in the Doan Brook watershed. On Saturday, April 16th, individuals, families, and community groups will have the chance to show Ambler Park some love by pulling trash, debris, and invasive vegetation from the stream corridor and surrounding trails and roadways.
Volunteers will meet at Fairhill Partners Parking Lot (we will have tents and tables set up). Sign-in/registration begins at 12:30 pm; cleanup runs from 1-3 pm. Gloves and trash bags will be provided. Warm clothing is recommended.
