We couldn't just let the late April snows take away this year's River Gorge Stewards Earth Day cleanup! We have rescheduled this community cleanup and hope you will join us at East 36th Street and West River Parkway on Tuesday, July 23 from 6 - 8 p.m.
No preregistration is required for this event, unless you plan to come with a group of 15 or more. In that case, please contact FMR Registrar Lindsay Hefferan (firstname.lastname@example.org) so she can ensure we are properly equipped.
Hope to see you there!
