Passover Park Cleanup Tuesday, March 30 at 3:00 PM
Location: Nomahegan Park (meet at the parking lot by the soccer fields along Kenilworth Blvd)
The outdoors has served as such great therapy for all of us over the past year, where we could breathe fresh air and stretch our legs after spending way too much time indoors. That said, with more people spending time in our parks and less organized park clean-ups, there has also been a build-up of litter in our forests and streams. This Passover, we will inevitably focus not only on ancient times but also on new plagues that have changed our world recently. We should also remember how inextricably linked our human health is with the very ecosystems that support us. On Tuesday, March 30, we will be working as a (socially-distanced) community to show Nomahegan Park some love and clean up some of the garbage that has accumulated. We are limiting the event to 25 people, so please RSVP as soon as possible. Work gloves and litter grabbers will be available, masks are required, and we will be sure to follow social distancing guidelines.
