Annual Trail and Brush Cleanups planned for May 3
The annual Trail Cleanup will be held on Saturday morning, May 3, from 8:00 am to 11:00 am. Volunteers will meet at the Woodland Drive Wayside, across from the Aurora Hospital to pick up trash and debris along the Trail. Workers should bring gloves; trash collection bags will be provided. Participants can begin whenever they wish, and can work as long as they wish.
On the same day, a brush cleanup will take place along the Trail from 8;00 to 11:00 am. This event, sponsored by the City of Two Rivers, is usually held in October, but had to be cancelled last year because of inclement weather. Volunteers will meet at the "fish sculpture" Wayside (opposite Thiede Street). Once again, they can begin whenever they wish and work as long as they wish. They are asked to bring a pruning shears or saw (hand operated, no power tools) if possible.
Those planning to work on the Cleanup Day are advised to wear warm clothing; the lakeshore can be quite cold in early May.
