The City of Cuyahoga Falls invites groups and individuals to participate in the community’s 2012 Great American River Day Cleanup & Bicentennial Beautification Project planned for Saturday, May 19th from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Volunteers will be cleaning up litter along the Cuyahoga River and throughout the community, planting flowers at designated park shelters and entry areas, and pulling invasive garlic mustard plants in public park areas.
Volunteers who would like to help with litter cleanup are encouraged to pre-select public grounds areas of the community and/or accessible public grounds areas along the river that are in need of cleanup. Cleanup supplies, planting materials, refreshments and lunch will be provided for project volunteers. Volunteers are welcome to help for any length of time and may help with various project activities. (Citizens who cannot participate on River Day may plan a cleanup activity of a community public grounds area of their choosing on a different date.)
River Day volunteers should register by Wednesday, May 16th by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 330-971-8201. Volunteers are also encouraged to dress for the weather and to wear protective clothing. Participants in the 2012 Great American River Day Cleanup & Bicentennial Beautification Project will meet at the Shady Bend Shelter in Water Works Park, 2025 Munroe Falls Avenue, at 10:00 AM.
