Euclid Creek Cleanup Challenge
We will regretfully not be able to hold our annual Wildwood Cleanup together in person, but that doesn't mean we can't take individual actions to help cleanup Euclid Creek. During the month of May join us in picking up litter around the watershed.
*Volunteers cannot work on Cleveland Metroparks Properties without a signed waiver and CSWCD or CMP supervion. So we ask at this time that you refrain from cleanup efforts at Cleveland Metroparks properties.
There is a still a lot of litter throughout the watershed, whether that be in parks, streets, or in backyards. Removing even one piece of trash is a small step towards helping the watershed, and when we all take one small step, it can add up to cumulative impact.
When you are outside recreating in or simply enjoying our local green spaces and neighborhoods, use the opportunity to collect and properly dispose of the trash or garlic mustard in your path. Make sure to keep track of the quantity and type of litter you collect and submit the information to us using the form on this page so we can compile data that demonstrates the power of individual action for collective good. No contribution is too small – the example that is set by taking the time to collect even a single piece of litter can contribute to developing a region-wide ethic of stewardship and a shared sense of ownership of our beloved, outdoor spaces.
We welcome photos of you on the job or before and after shots of our communities and parks via email or facebook to help inspire others! Reach out if you’d like guidance for where to target your cleanup efforts.
Please be sure to follow proper social distancing guidelines when recreating outside and wear protective gloves when handling/disposing of litter!
