WVU Core Arboretum Spring Floodplain Cleanup

spring floodplain cleanupVolunteers help keep the Arboretum beautiful, and you can take part in some spring cleaning!  We do not have much of a user-generated litter problem here at the Arboretum, but the Monongahela River continually deposits trash along its banks in the floodplain region of the Arboretum.  We organize a group to clean up the mess each spring before all of the plants come back.  The cleanup effort is open to all.  It is hard work, but good exercise, and it is much appreciated by the Arboretum’s many users.  Interested volunteers should email Zach Fowler (zfowler@mail.wvu.edu) to register, and WVU students and faculty should register on iServe.  Volunteers will meet near the Arboretum parking lot.  Volunteers should wear closed toe shoes, long pants, and clothes that are okay to get dirty.  The event will be cancelled if the weather is dangerous.
