Boneyard Creek Community Day | Scott Park, Champaign
Looking for a class volunteer project or a new way to bring the family together? Join the Champaign Park District in making a difference at one of Champaign-Urbana’s natural treasures. Help restore the beauty of the Boneyard Creek in Champaign, Urbana, and Campustown by participating in this organized clean-up.
Volunteer registration is now open: http://www.boneyardcreek.org/
The starting point for this event will be at Scott Park, 207 E. Springfield Ave. Onsite registration will also be available on the day of the event, but pre-registration helps for planning purposes. Lunch, music, and educational displays at Scott Park will be provided following the clean-up.
Boneyard Creek Community Day is a way to celebrate and protect our lakes and streams by engaging volunteers to pitch in and clean up. Litter looks bad and leads to more litter. It clogs storm drains causing local flooding and ends up in receiving streams harming aquatic life. This event helps remind us all to be responsible citizens and put trash (and recycling) in its place.
Be on site to register at 9am. Free lunch will follow!
