Each April, volunteers gather to help clean up a section of Boneyard Creek including: Scott Park, Kaufman Lake/Heritage Park, Boulware Trail, Hedge Rd Pop Up Park, Anita Purves, Boneyard Creek Crossing, Savoy Rt 45, U of I Campus, and North Prospect.

You can volunteer as an individual or as a group. Clean up begins at 9 a.m. on April 22nd, and ends at 12 p.m. There will be educational displays, music, and free pizza at Scott Park.

Register online by April 17th, or there will be onsite registration at Scott Park. The rain date for the event is April 29th.

April 22nd is Earth Day, so what better way to celebrate than to clean up and beautify one of our community’s natural resources?
