Grant Woods Cleanup Ttrash -: April 21st from 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm and May 5th from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm Meet at the Grant’s Woods parking lot If you’re not familiar with Grant’s Woods, it is the property that contains the big parking lot for the High Trestle Trail Bridge, as well as the rock trail leading from the parking lot to the High Trestle Trail. There is a lot of scrap metal and trash in the ravines which we would like removed. This will be pretty labor intensive, although we will have some equipment on site to assist with the process. If you are interested in volunteering, please wear sturdy boots / shoes and gloves. It would be helpful if you can bring a shovel (if you have one) as some of the items are covered by soil. Please email me and let me know if you will be coming for one or both of the days, so I can be prepared for the proper amount of people. Also, it would save us all time if you can fill out the attached volunteer contract and bring that in with you. Who: Boone County Conservation Board and you! What: picking up trash / junk and scrap metal. Please bring boots, gloves, shovels, and signed volunteer contract form
