** POSTPONED from original date, Wed. April 17 **


Each year around this time volunteers come to help us take care of the creekside area of Dry Run Creek that flows past the library parking lot.  Over the wintertime lots of trash has blown in or floated into this area, so we will pick it up and either recycle or dispose of it.

Wear your cruddy clothes and bring your work gloves so you can share in the good feeling that comes from working with others to make the world a beautiful place. There are also shrubs and flowers to attract birds and butterflies that will some weeding and mulching and label fixing.  We will also finally put up our bat house and look for critters to add to our inventory of what lives there.    If it is necessary to postpone the cleanup because of wet conditions or other weather related issues, this will be announced on KDEC radio, and we will have alternative indoor activities Volunteers must wear long pants, solid shoes and socks.  Work gloves are helpful, but some will be provided.  For questions about tools that might help our project, please call Heidi Swets at DPL, 382-3717.
