Rockefeller Park Stream Sweep
Sign in starts at 12:30pm
Where: Rockefeller Park Lagoon gazebo
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 series of cleanup events in both the Dugway Brook and Doan Brook watersheds. On Saturday, April 3rd, individuals, families, and community groups will have the chance to show the Doan Brook and Rockefeller Park some love by pulling trash, debris, and invasive vegetation from the stream corridor and surrounding trails and roadways.
Volunteers will meet at the Rockefeller Park Lagoon gazebo in University Circle near Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and East 105th Street. Additional parking near the gazebo is available across MLK near the tennis courts (entrance off E. 105th Street). 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.
