Please save the date of morning th, for our annual RiverSweep 2017 event. It is volunteerism done in one half day. All NEOCHMM members, family and friends and guests are welcome to participate. This will be our 10thannual event !
The West Creek Conservancy has asked us to help upgrade a lot on the west flank of West Creek, adjoining a residential area. We will be working at 7225 Glencarin Drive in Parma Ohio 44134. A house on this lot was demolished in 2016. We restoring the lot to its natural presentation, found in West Creek, including sprucing up the lot; planting of trees and other native plants along with seeding the lot. If we have any extra time, we will prepare the lot for split rail fencing, which will be installed at a later date.
CHMMunity grant ® program. This will pay for the trees, landscaping and seeding materials. We will also be seeking additional funding for the fencing. Also, the “grassroots” funding helps the WCC to seek larger grants from private institutional and governmental organizations, as these organizations first look to see if WCC has a viable funding and implementation program for smaller projects.
Plan to dress in layers, wear boots or old shoes and bring your favorite pair of gloves, digging tool and a gallon or two of water. We will provide gloves, tools and refreshments. The water will be used to ‘water in’ the trees that we plant.
Check back to this site in late April for registration and meeting details. Due to limited parking on the Glencarin cul-du-sac, we will be carpooling from the registration area in the Giant Eagle Parking Lot
