Forest Park Neighborhood Cleanup

Every year thousands of people bike and drive through and around Forest Park. Too many leave behind trash along the roadside, about a ton's worth every year. Join us on Earth Day to pick up cans, remove tires, hike into steep ravines and scramble up hillsides. Good for the whole family---we have easy and difficult routes. So, come dressed for the weather and we'll provide lots of coffee, snacks, safety vests, gloves and a rewarding time in the fresh air making our Forest Park neighborhood sparkle. Adult volunteers are invited to gather at the Skyline Tavern afterwards. Activities include: Litter Cleanup.
