Doan Brook Annual Stream Sweep

Community members are invited to celebrate Earth Day and make a difference by volunteering for the annual Doan Brook Spring Stream Sweep on Sunday, April 22, from 1:00-4:00pm. Litter such as plastic bags, bottles, food wrappers, Styrofoam and coffee cups wash down storm drains that connect to local streams and rivers. Volunteer as an individual or a group to clear a winter's worth of trash and debris from the stream corridor ¬?ranging from the lower reach of the Brook in University Circle to the Shaker Parklands area between Cleveland and Shaker Heights. Volunteers may choose to meet at the Rockefeller Park Lagoon Gazebo in University Circle by Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and East 105th, or the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes, 2600 South Park Boulevard, Cleveland. Registration at both sites will be ongoing during the afternoon, with gloves and trash bags to be provided, as well as refreshments. The Doan Brook Spring Stream Sweep is hosted by the Doan Brook Watershed Partnership and Nature Center at Shaker Lakes. For more information or to register, call 216-321-5935 ext. 234 or email Mary Ryan at ryan@shakerlakes.org. Interested participants are encouraged to register in advance; signed waivers will be required.
