Environmental Commission Clean-Up

Environmental & Historical Center located at 142 E. Ormond Ave.

Clean-ups:     Trash Pick-up and Invasive Plants Removal is a volunteer event for the entire family. Dress for the weather. You will be working around different types of plants, so wear rugged clothing you won’t care too much if they get dirty.

Why: Trash left in the woods can potentially harm area wildlife both in the woods and in waterways of our creeks, streams and lakes.    Invasive plants, such as English ivy, wraps around and kills many of the trees in the park.   Invasive plants negatively affect our forest, parks and open spaces by reducing plant diversity by crowding-out native species.


We provide: work gloves, trash bags and hand-wipes.   Also available for use a limited supply of garden pruners and trash-grabbers.

You provide: garden pruners and large, flat bladed screw driver for pulling vines away from tree.

Waiver: A waiver will need to be signed by a responsible adult for all participants
