Saturday March 26: Winter trash cleanup

20 Mar

Now that the snow has melted and spring has sprung, an ever-multiplying invasive species has revealed itself at Rainbow Beach Dunes: trash. Buried under snow all winter or constantly washed up on the beach, trash is something we have to contend with nearly all year round. Please join us this Saturday, March 26 from 9-11 to take a walk, see what’s growing, and clean up the nature area.

Rainbow Beach is located at 3111 E. 77th St.  By foot, walk east from South Shore Dr. on 77th St.  By car, enter from 79th St., go past the water treatment plant, and park in the first parking lot. Parking passes are available. Please meet at the nature area, which is located at the southern end of the beach.  Tools and equipment will be provided, but please bring water and dress appropriately for the weather. Contact Alison Anastasio at alison.anastasio[at] for questions and to RSVP.
