Davenport Corridor Cleanup (Mar)

Picture of volunteers cleaning up Welcome Way during the 2016 Corridor CleanupAfter the snow melts each spring we are often left with gateways littered with debris captured by snow pack along the boulevard.  The Corridor Cleanup was established to help spruce up Davenport's gateways following the winter thaw.  

The cleanup is a great opportunity to greet spring, and to help protect our water resources by picking up materials that might otherwise be carried by wind or water to our local creeks and streams. Aside from leaving the cleanup with a sense of pride in a job well done, participants in the cleanup will have fun, make new friends, and receive a free t-shirt for their efforts to help us improve our community. 

Join us!

Date:  Saturday, March 24, 2018, Check-in and Supply pick-up 8:00 to 8:30 AM, Cleanup 8:30 AM to 11:00 AM
