Constitution Trail/Sugar Creek Clean Up – EARTH DAY
April 22 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Help keep your community clean and healthy–celebrate Earth Day and help out with Bloomington-Normal Clean Up Week. Volunteer with the Ecology Action Center, McLean County Wheelers, Friends of the Constitution Trail, Bike BloNo, and Lake Run Club to clean up along the Constitution Trail and Sugar Creek.
Sign up to help using the volunteer form below. Minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Dress appropriately for the weather and bring your own work gloves if possible. Trash bags will be provided. Please register using the form below to help us plan for appropriate numbers; refreshments will be provided at the end of the workday. In the sign up form, you will chose to work in one of two groups–either the group meeting at Tipton Park at 9 a.m. or the group meeting in the back parking lot behind the Chateau at 9 a.m.
Volunteers can also choose to help with the Sugar Creek Stewards initiative taking place also on Saturday, April 22. This project works to improve stream buffers throughout Bloomington-Normal through removal of nonnative or invasive species. Volunteers can sign up for that workday also via the EAC’s website.
