Doan Brook Stream Sweep

When: April 20, 2024 | 1 to 3 pm

Where: Nature Center at Shaker Lakes

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, individuals, families, and community groups will have the chance to show the Doan Brook some love by pulling trash, debris, and invasive vegetation from the stream corridor and surrounding trails and roadways.

Volunteers will meet at the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes. Gloves and trash bags will be provided. Please dress for the weather and wet or muddy conditions. Registration is requested and walk-ups are welcomed!
