Each participant must sign a waiver which will be provided during registration. No experience is necessary. All participants are asked to wear sturdy shoes and to dress for the weather.
Registered volunteers should meet at the Headwaters Parking Lot (Southeast corner of the Harrison Street Bridge) at 8 am, Saturday, May 4. Volunteers are encouraged to bring small hand tools such as tree saws, bow saws or loppers/pruners to remove vegetation.
Cleaning locations include: Land in front of the Water Filtration Plant; Third Street Pump Station; Headwaters Park West; Harrison Street Bridge leading into Headwaters Park; Harrison Street Bridge heading east towards Historic Wells St. Bridge; East Bloomingdale Park; and West Central around the Main Street Bridge.
Tri-State Watershed Alliance, Fort Wayne Parks & Recreation, City of Fort Wayne Solid Waste Department and the Downtown Improvement District are partnering with The Friends of the Parks of Allen County in this initiative.
