UUSS Parkway Mile Cleanup Saturday, 5/14/16

Posted by David Dawson

Posted on May 10, 2016

Second Saturday is on the horizon again with another chance for us to make a difference by picking up trash on the UU Mile of the American River Parkway. After the rains, the beautiful weather we’re having ensures that many people will have visited our mile, and some of them will have left behind much more than footprints; …and the spring growth should be pretty surprising to see.

We’ll meet this next Saturday, as usual, between 8:45-9:00 AM in the parking lot at the west end of Northrop Avenue, next to the levee, near Panera off Howe Avenue. If this will be your first time to assist, I’ll get your contact info and brief you on our cleanup activity. We’ll clean up trash from the Parkway until 10:30 and rejoin at that time at the foot of the levee stairway for a quick photo of our crew and the results of our work. Coffee and conversation afterward at Panera are always a pleasant option afterward.

Many thanks to everyone who dropped by our table at the Activities Fair. Hopefully, as a result, we’ll be able to introduce a few new people to the UU mile. Here below (click on photo for full-size), I’ll introduce you to a mourning dove who recently greeted me at the shoreline of the river as I returned in my kayak.

With much appreciation for your caring for our environment,

Dave Dawson

  1. HI, Lloyd and Betty Crockford will be there this Saturday 8:46 am. We are experienced walkers along The River. Thanks for doing this.

    Do we bring own sacks?

  2. Hi, Betty & Lloyd,

    Thanks for your interest in lending a hand! No need for you to bring sacks; I’ll have plenty of trash bags. You’d probably find those “picker-upper/reacher/grabber” tools to be useful if you have them. Here’s a link to one like I use: http://www.osh.com/Osh-Categories/Home/Kitchen-%26-Bath/EZ-Reacher-Standard-Pick-Up-Tool%2C-32-Inch%2C-Black/p/4398269

    See you out there!

    Dave
