CELEBRATE SPRING BY SWEEPING THE STREETS CLEAN
PARK SLOPE CIVIC COUNCIL!
Make a clean sweep of our beautiful neighborhood by joining the Park Slope Civic Council at its annual spring beautification, recycling and clean-up event — the Spring Civic Sweep on Sunday, April 14th, 2019.
Put on your old clothes and come to the sidewalk in front of Old Stone House/JJ Byrne Playground, 5th Avenue between 3rd and 4th Streets from 10 am to 2 pm (rain or shine). Join other volunteers in:
- weeding and mulching street trees
- picking up litter on sidewalks
- painting out graffiti on lampposts (must be supervised by adults)
We’ll serve refreshments, and we’ll provide all tools and supplies. Volunteers will leave wearing “I Made Park Slope Cleaner Today” stickers. Community Service vouchers will be available. Common Milkweed plants, a critical resource for Monarch butterfly reproduction, will be given away along with one or two other native perennials. The Lower East Side Ecology Center will collect unwanted electronics for recycling.
See you there!
