Riverfront Cleanup Nov 15th, 2014


Last June, ELNA officially adopted the Riverfront Habitat Restoration through the City of Lawrence Parks and Recreation Department’s “Adopt-a-Park” program. The program encourages clean, beautiful parks and builds community through mutual stewardship of our natural assets. The Riverfront is one of East Lawrence’s finest natural assets. It is typical for a park to be cleaned three or four times per year, and we had our first clean up in March. Our next clean up is happening Saturday November 15th from 8am to Noon. The location to be cleaned is the in East Lawrence directly north of the Santa Fe Train Station at 7th and New York Streets. We will meet in the lower parking lot of the former Riverfront Mall (now Springhill Suites), directly north of the train station. ELNA will provide the bagels and coffee, a jug of water and cups, and the City of Lawrence will provide trash bags and vinyl gloves. . Attendees should wear sturdy shoes, long sleeves and long pants. Work gloves might also be helpful. The event will be rain or shine with no alternate date planned. Young children should be accompanied by an adult. This park has excellent wildlife habitat as well as access to the Kansas River. Attendees can expect to have a good time and get some exercise in nature.
