April 25: Community Stewardship Workday

22 Apr


Come out to Rainbow Beach Dunes this Saturday for an Earth Day workday! We are stewards of the nature area all year round, but Earth Day is a great time to celebrate our hard work and think about stewardship in a broader context. We’ll be picking up trash and other debris in the nature area.

Join us this Saturday April 25 from 10am-12pm.

Remember to prepare for the weather and terrain: it may be cool and windy! Sturdy shoes, long pants and water are recommended. Tools and equipment will be provided. Contact Alison Anastasio at for questions and to RSVP.

Rainbow Beach Park runs parallel to South Shore Drive from 75th-79th Streets.
By foot, walk east from South Shore Dr. on 77th St.
By car, you can only access the park at the southern end.
From the north/west, follow Hwy 41 east as it splits from South Shore Drive at 79th St. Turn left into the park at Farragut.
From the south, follow Hwy 41 north and turn right on Farragut, just before the intersection of 79th/South Shore.
Once in the park, go past the stop sign and water filtration plant and turn right at the next opportunity, into the parking lot before the Field House. Go to the southeast end of this lot and park. Meet at the entrance to the Nature Area, which is located at the southern end of the beach (look for the banner!).
