Columbia Heights Streets get a Spring Cleaning
Event ID: #10847
April 20 @ 8:30 am
Posted on April 9th, 2019
Columbia Heights Lions International and HeightsNEXT are organizing volunteers for an Earth Day cleanup along University and Central Avenues. Volunteers’ efforts will freshen up local streetscapes and prevent trash from drifting with spring’s melting snow through storm drains into the Mississippi River. Meet at 8:30 am on Saturday, April 20, in the parking lot of Murzyn Hall, 530 Mill St. NE, Columbia Heights.
Bags, safety vests and trash pickers will be available to aid in picking up litter. A group photo will be taken to commemorate the team’s work that day and each set of volunteers will be assigned a section of road where they will pick up litter. After volunteers complete their cleanup assignments, they are invited to meet back at the parking lot of Murzyn Hall to return equipment and enjoy light refreshments until roughly 11 am.
The cleanup will occur “rain or shine,” so participants should dress for the weather. To volunteer, email firstname.lastname@example.org so organizers know how much equipment to reserve for the event.
