Spring is finally here! Well, that’s what the calendar says. The weather is a different story. TNP is in overdrive planning for our annual Spring cleanup happening this Earth Day. Today we are going to discuss our plans and tell you how you can volunteer!
As mentioned in the title, we are having two Earth Day cleanups this year. Earth Day falls on a Wednesday this year which could be hard for some of you to attend. On the other hand, some employers allow their employees to take the day off or a half day to volunteer. So we are planning our first cleanup for Wednesday, April 22nd beginning at 5:00 PM for this purpose. The second project will take place on that following Saturday, April 25th between 12:30 – 3:00 PM. This is also our rain date in the case Wednesday’s weather turns out bad. Both projects include the same amount of work to be completed.

Volunteers are needed to assist in a park, river, and trail cleanup as we prepare for the boating season. Riverfront Park is used primarily for boaters looking to enter the Schuylkill River and is the home of Dragon Boat Club of Norristown. By cleaning this park and surrounding area, we are creating a positive image for the outsiders who use this park and encouraging them to respect the park and keep it clean. Here are other tasks volunteers will be assigned to:

  • Cleaning the riverbank, trail and park grounds
  • Pruning bushes/trees and pulling weeds
  • Planting flowers (tentative)
  • Clearing debris caused by previous flooding and Winter
  • Cleaning up surrounding neighborhood (time permitting)

We encourage individual, group and business registration for our Earth Day cleanup. RSVP is strongly recommended, however, if you find out you can attend at the last minute, you’re invited to join! As the dates get closer and plans begin to finalize, we will announce more details about this project. In the meantime, please help by spreading the word and keep your calendars open for April 22nd or April 25th! Email sashe@montcooic.org for more details.
