Join the Annual Prairie Path Cleanup
April 6, 2012 by Sarah
On Saturday, April 28th, the community of Warrenville will be celebrating “Earth Day” by cleaning up the Prairie Path. This is an annual event that starts at the City Hall Gazebo located at 28W701 Stafford Place in Warrenville, Illinois. This event starts at 9am. This is a rain or shine event, so please come dressed appropriately.
Volunteers will leave the City Hall Parking Lot at 9am and start working west of the Route 59. This year, the organizers are hoping to clean up all 62 miles of the Illinois Prairie Path. Participants are asked to bring a set of work gloves, a collection of garbage bags, and a raincoat in case of bad weather.
Every year, the volunteers of this group help pick up litter and debris for disposal by the community. The Illinois Prairie Trail is a wonderful area for walking with the family, walking with your dog, or riding your bike, so coming out to assist by volunteering your time is a great way to help your community keep its “clean” status in the state.
The organizers are still looking for more volunteers to assist. This event is free to everyone and a great way to celebrate this year’s Earth Day. There will be refreshments and other goodies available throughout the day for all volunteers to enjoy.
Flyer printing with additional information can be pick up at the city hall or a PDF can be downloaded online, no doubt banner printing and poster printing are already up all over the city raising awareness for this great event. For more information on this event, or to volunteer, please contact Jennifer McMahon, the Assistant City Administrator at the City Hall by calling 630-393-9427
