Now that the snow has melted, we can see the trash that was under the snow, left behind from last season. Yuck. Please consider lending a hand on Saturday, April 26th, at 8 a.m. as the Friends of Grant Park and Friends of the Mill Pond will he handing out trash bags at the beach house. Trash cleanup from our end will be focused along the beach and up through the parkway. If folks have their own gloves, that is recommended. And if you wish to do cigarette butt duty at the beach lot, a fine tined rake will help in that regard. Any folks with waders are welcome to get down into the shallows of the creek to haul out refuse unless the creek is running high and fast as it did after recent storms.
Please consider Spring Cleanups In The Parks sponsored by Keep Greater Milwaukee Beautiful and Riverkeepers. Other locations for clean up in South Milwaukee starting at 9 a.m. are:
First District: Oak Creek Parkway/North Chicago
Second District: South Milwaukee Fire Department
Third District: City Hall
Fourth District: 16th and Rawson (Oak Creek Parkway)
A clean park is a happy park.
