BIG Clean up at Beaver Pond Park

Dear Friends of Beaver Pond Park and Beaver Hill neighbors,

Please join our second historic collaboration between SCSU and FOBPP. On Sunday, April 27th, 2008 from 1:00 to 3:00 PM, the Friends of Beaver Pond Park will team with the Environmental Futurists of SCSU to clean up Beaver Pond Park in and around North Pond. The workday includes removal of invasive species, native tree planting, and litter removal at Beaver Pond Park near the SCSU campus. This event is an ongoing collaboration between FOBPP and SCSU. The Urban Resources Initiative (URI) will provide the trees and bushes to plant and will give technical advice on where and how to plant correctly. SCSU will provide water, fruit, and pastries. Please bring your family and join our efforts to make our park sparkle.
