3rd Annual Little Bear Creek Cleanup

Imagine Grinnell is looking for volunteers to participate in the Third Annual Little Bear Creek Cleanup.

The cleanup will be on Saturday, April 11 from 9 AM-11 AM. Check-in will be located at the Summer Street Park pavilion. Click here to RSVP to volunteer.

 

Here’s what you need to know:

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.

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 them. Also, bring along buckets if you have them because garbage bags tend to get caught on tree branches and tear.
