First Annual Little Bear Creek Clean Up

Come and enjoy some clean up fun at Jaycees Park!

Organized by Imagine Grinnell and Poweshiek County Soil & Water Conservation District

When: Saturday, June 15, 2013 from 9 a.m. – 11 a.m. (Rain Date June 22)

Where: Jaycees Park, 720 Summer Street, Grinnell IA 50112

Check-in and parking: Jaycees Park at the pavilion (park along Summer Street, not a lot of parking so carpooling is encouraged)

Dress: Be prepared to get dirty! Depending on water level in the creek, you may want to bring waders or boots if you have them. Wear old clothes and tennis shoes to climb in and out of the creek and/or walk in the woods. Other items you may want are sunscreen, bug repellent, gardening gloves or rubber cleaning gloves.

Supplies: Garbage bags, latex gloves, bottled water, and first aid will be available. If you have refillable water bottles, feel free to bring those! A few shovels will be available to dig out tires and other large debris, but if you have other tools and shovels, feel free to label and bring. Also, bring along buckets if you have them because garbage bags tend to get caught on tree branches and tear.
