Doan Brook Weed Pull and Stream Cleanup
DOAN BROOK ANNUAL STREAM SWEEP AND WEED PULL

EVERYDAY IN APRIL

The Doan Brook Annual Stream Sweep & Weed Pull on Sunday, April 19 at 1pm is cancelled. Instead, (FUN IDEA!) over the course of the next month, we are encouraging people to pick up litter as part of their outdoor exercise or recreational routines. Fill out a form on the Doan Brook website to share what type and quantity of litter was collected. We will compile the data and keep our community apprised of how much litter was collectively removed from our local neighborhoods and green spaces.
