Sugar Creek Stewards April Workday
April 22, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Come join us for our April workday along Sugar Creek! We need help improving Sugar Creek in Bloomington near Tipton Parks and in Normal, near Anderson and Fairview parks by clearing invasive plant species and managing the non-invasive plants. We’ll work the Fairview site for the April work day.
The next workday is Saturday, April 22, from 9 am to 12 pm, and is part of our larger BN Spring Clean-up Day! Volunteers must be 18 years old or older (or 14 and accompanied by a parent or guardian) and be able to hike along uneven terrain and safely use basic hand tools such as loppers and bow saws. Please wear warm weather appropriate clothing and bring your own work gloves and (reusable) bottle of water. We have scheduled work days the 3rd Saturday of the month throughout the year – invasive species never sleep, so neither can we!
The Sugar Creek Stewards is a Clean Water Program of the Ecology Action Center, and is supported by the City of Bloomington and the Town of Normal. For more information, contact us.
Details on worksite and meeting location will be provided to registered volunteers prior to the workday. To become a regular EAC volunteer and be automatically contacted for future Sugar Creek Steward workdays and other volunteer opportunities, register at EAC-Volunteer.
