Come out for a land-based litter clean-up at Four Mile Run, on the day of service in recognition and remembrance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Our effort will focus on litter in the restoration meadow area and the Sunnyside tributary stream, both of which are in much need of attention. Sturdy shoes with good traction are recommended.

WHAT TO EXPECT:

The streamside area is steep-sloped and muddy; we are able to provide hip boots in a range of sizes for volunteers to use in this area. The restoration meadow area is vegetated and may be muddy.
