Event description

Description

Mother's Day weekend calls for showing some love to everyone's mother- Mother Nature! Rally your friends and family members and come out to Maple Lake for a targeted shoreline cleanup on Saturday, May 12th from 9am to noon.

Volunteer as an individual or form a team and tackle the trash that accumulates along the shoreline, posing a hazard to birds and aquatic animals including frogs and fish.

Litter is a serious problem, but the cleanup will be fun. Forest Preserve Staff will work to deploy groups to different sections of the Maple Lake shoreline. Compete with fellow volunteers to see who can collect the most trash. Get photographed with your weirdest piece of litter—one person’s trash might be your “Catch of the Day”. All participants earn serious bragging rights.

Trash grabbers, gloves and bags and refreshments will be provided. Wearing rubber boots is highly encouraged.
