Events for Saturday, April 18, 2020

Rockefeller Park Stream Sweep
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Litter is a persistent problem in our parks and green spaces, where it is both harmful to the environment and unsightly. Litter such as plastic bags, bottles, food wrappers, Styrofoam, and coffee cups that gets discarded on our streets can enter local waterways through storm drains and ultimately end up in Lake Erie, our source of drinking water. We organize clean-up days in the spring to help maintain our watersheds and green spaces and to give volunteers an opportunity to demonstrate how much they value our urban parks, streams, and waterways.

On Saturday, April 18th, individuals, families, and community groups will have the chance to show the Doan Brook and Rockefeller Park some love by pulling trash, debris, and invasive vegetation from the stream corridor and surrounding trails and roadways.

Sign-in/registration begins at 12:30 pm; clean-up runs from 1-3 pm. Gloves and trash bags will be provided, as well as snacks and refreshments. Warm clothing is recommended.
Location:
Volunteers will meet at the Rockefeller Park Lagoon gazebo in University Circle near Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and East 105th Street. Additional parking near the gazebo is available across MLK near the tennis courts (entrance off E. 105th Street).

Classical guitarist David Russell is world-renowned for his superb musicianship and inspired artistry, earning the highest praise from audiences and critics alike.

It was apparent to the audience throughout the recital that Mr. Russell possesses a talent of extraordinary dimension.
