Saturday, September 22nd is National Public Lands Day, celebrated by the National Park Service and other federal land management agencies and non-profits.
Here in Petworth, neighbor Carol Herwig, who regularly cleans up Grant Circle, is planning a clean-up of the small triangular park north of Grant Circle (between 5th and Illinois Ave) on Sunday, September 22nd at 10am. (With the other NPLD events on Saturday, Carol is hoping people will come out on Sunday to help with the local clean-up.)
Volunteers will pick up trash, remove dead shrubs and address dead and dying trees (inventory and making a list for replacements). “Come with gloves and pruners if you have them,” Carol said. “We will supply trash bags and pruning guidance.”
Work should be completed by noon.
You can contact Carol Herwig with questions.
