High Line Canal Clean-Up Re-Scheduled for Saturday, March 30, 2019
Volunteers and segment leaders are needed to clear trash and debris from the eleven mile stretch of the canal that runs through the city of Aurora. The goal for the day is to reduce the amount of trash being discharged from the Canal to Sand Creek and to Toll Gate Creek. Along with the benefits from the outdoor exercise, the event is also an excellent opportunity to learn about the problems caused from littering and the importance of protecting our waterways.
To register, click here and scroll down to the High Line Canal opportunity. Interested people will need to create a volunteer profile. This is needed to help organizers communicate with volunteers.
The volunteer registration website has a downloadable Volunteer waiver. Every volunteer is required to have a waiver completed prior to working on the High Line Canal. If the portal is proving cumbersome or if you have questions, please feel free to contact Lottia Villalba
