When:  Meet at 10 am

Where:  Riverside Park, on Hines Drive between Haggerty and Wilcox

Do something nice for Earth Day!  Our adopted stretch of road extends along Hines Drive between Haggerty Road and Wilcox. Attractive yellow safety vests and plastic gloves will be provided, but you may want to wear some heavy garden gloves and rubber boots. 

Please be aware that Hines Drive is closed between Wilcox and Newburgh roads due to bridge safety concerns, indefinitely. This includes our stretch of roadway, so plan on arriving early to park in the subdivision near Riverside Park.  Yes, our infrastructure is crumbling, and 45 wants to build a damn wall.


Clean-up usually takes about an hour and a half, and most volunteers go to lunch afterward at Leo's Coney Island on Ann Arbor Rd. RSVP or just show up if you are unsure about your schedule in advance.
