Work Day: March 21, 2015

Time for some Spring Cleaning!

As adopters of Hanes Park, we have committed to at least 4 work days a year to contribute to the maintenance of Hanes Park. We will be meeting for our first work day of 2015 this coming Saturday, March 21 in conjunction with The Great American Clean Up. It is time for some spring cleaning and the Park could really use your help!

FOHP CleanUp Bannr-01

Our goal is not only to pick up litter and downed limbs but also to carefully trim invasive plants from the stream bank to ensure clear sight lines across the creek. We will pair skilled labor with unskilled labor working in teams. Please let us know of your plant knowledge and experience in your reply.

We will meet at the bleachers beside the hard surfaced tennis courts between the tot lot and the parking lot in Hanes Park at 9 a.m. Arrive in clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. Long sleeves, long pants, high socks, waterproof boots and a change of shoes and socks are highly recommended. We will be clearing vines and working near a stream.

Keep Winston Salem Beautiful! will provide some basic supplies such as gloves, trash bags, bottled water, safety vests, etc as well as lunch! FoHP is asking those who have hand held, manual pruning equipment (not power operated) to please bring it.

Participants will need to sign a waiver. We will send one to those that RSVP.
