Come out and help Allegheny Cleanways with its cleanup of Duck Hollow. We'll be concentrating on trail maintenance, riverbank cleanup, and removing as much of the dumped debris as possible. If necessary, we may schedule one more cleanup there in the fall, but we're hoping to get it all cleaned up this time around. As always, be sure to wear long pants and sturdy shoes or boots that can get dirty. Also, if you have a truck and don't mind using it to haul some very ugly debris, we sure could use it. We'll provide all other equipment and refreshments.
9 a.m. - 12 noon. Access from Old Browns Hill Road. More information and a map are online.
Allegheny Cleanways has a couple of cleanups already scheduled for September and more will be added soon. September 25th is the last Tireless event of the season and on the 26th we'll be working with the Mt. Washington CDC to clean up part of Emerald View Park. The junk we pull out of the park will then be used by local artists to create art pieces for the Wild Art, Wild Trails Festival on October 3rd (a call for artists is attached).
There will be several cleanups scheduled in October - many on the weekend of October 17th, as part of the annual Fall Reddup. Stay tuned to Facebook and the events page on our website for updates.
Also...don't forget, if you'd like to help out on a more regular basis, we are always in need of "dump busters" - volunteers who are willing to help clean up and monitor smaller sites on a more regular basis. The Dump Busters program runs just about every day, so you can decide when and how often you'd like to help, based on your availability.
