Description
Event Details:
The Scioto Greenway trail and rivers edge needs your help! This area is heavily used by commuters, recreational fishers, bikers, and hikers, but there is no neighborhood to help care for it. This area contains a large quantity of litter, partly due from trash traveling down stream which gets deposited along the river banks. We will be cleaning the area along the Lower Scioto Greenway Trail (just south of the dam) and focus on the west side of the Scioto River bank. We will meet at the top of the trail head near the fire station and move down the trail from there. Look for signs to direct you to the location! 

Please dress appropriately, dress in layers and prepare for inclement weather, wear toe-covering boots/shoes, and/or items you don’t mind getting dirty. Work gloves will be provided, but please bring a reusable water bottle to stay hydrated. 

FREE LUNCH: Falters Meats will generously provide bratwursts and Italian sausage to everyone helping with the event. Chips and snack bars will also be provided. Bring the family out for a great event and give back to the earth! This event is being sponsored by Friends of the Scioto River, Ohio Game Fishing, Ohio Chapter Sierra Club, and Falters Meats.
