Volunteers are needed to help with a cleanup of the Great Western Trails and the Illinois Prairie Path on Saturday, April 26, 2014 starting at 9:00 a.m. This is a rain or shine activity.
The Friends of the Great Western Trails, in cooperation with the Illinois Prairie Path not-for-profit corporation, has coordinated the event in observance of Earth Day 2014. The goal this year is to clean all the trails, including both sections of the Great Western Trail and all of the Illinois Prairie Path.
Volunteers are asked to bring work gloves and garbage bags, along with friends and family, to pick up litter along the trails. Although the trails are cleaned year round by volunteers, work is still needed and this is an opportunity for people to contribute to the natural treasure these trails represent in our community.
Those interested in helping to clean the Great Western Trails, please contact Don Kirchenberg via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. For the Illinois Prairie Path cleanup, visit www.ipp.org for more information.
