Who: Anyone, any age who wants to help clean up our river park, trails and surrounding areas for the spring time.
It is amazing how many times out running or walking on the Barbara Whipple Trail or hanging out at the River Park (and sports fields) just east of town that we all bump into so many good friends from the community. Many locals, fishermen, sports groups, special events and visitors alike use the trail and the river area on a regular basis all year. This winter has been no exception.
Local outdoor enthusiasts and some other folks have taken the initiative to get a BV River Park Clean Up Day organized. If you use the trails, sports facilities or park once a year or once a day, we highly encourage you to join everyone down there to help pick up trash, debris and yes some dog poop (not a requirement). Remember the trails sit right above the river, and water does not mix well with dog poop and trash. It is very important that we get the trails and park areas cleaned up for the health and beauty of this incredible asset.
The group will be meeting above the Whipple Bridge (adjacent to the bathrooms at the River Park) at 12:30 pm. Bring your work clothes, gloves and feel free to bring any TRDs (Trash Removal Devices) you may have at home. Kids are always welcome and encouraged to participate. Trash bags and plastic gloves will be provided.
Fun after event celebration will be at the Eddyline Brewery in the South Main River Park. We will have some pizza ( for those that helped out ) drink specials and a s'more cookout for kids )
PS, the Town of BV will be a host for this event and will be having an open softball game for all ages starting at 1.30 for anyone who wants to join in and have some extra fun after the clean up. So bring your gloves and you spirit to have some fun.
Please tell your friends.
