 Great American Cleanup / Keep Norfolk Beautiful Day 2014

Weather was perfect for our Keep Norfolk Beautiful Day/Great American Cleanup event on Saturday May 3, 2014.  We managed to do a great cleanup, focusing on an area of the Lafayette River headwaters marsh we have never hit before—the area adjacent to the intersection of Galveston Blvd. and Brickby Road, as well as our normal spot behind Archer’s Green Apartments and some median planting bed maintenance.

Volunteers also cleaned our regular Adopt-a-Spot location of Thole St./Galveston Blvd. and the grounds of Suburban Park Elementary School and Caton Park.

Compliments to Norfolk Public Works-Operationss for such a speedy special collection pickup this year…they were out lickety-split!
