One more advance shoutout for a community cleanup tomorrow (Saturday, March 15th) that REALLY needs you. Every year for more than two decades, Fairmount Ravine neighbors have joined forces to get out and not just pick up some of what’s been left behind, tossed out, dumped in the ravine, but also to pull invasives. You might know the area better for the road that runs from Harbor Avenue uphill/south almost all the way to Hiawatha, under the eastern Admiral Way Bridge. The road and bridge are used by far more than just the area residents, so consider pitching in. The basics:

*Saturday, March 15th, 8:30 am (stay as little or as long as you can)
*Meet at the top of the hill at Fairmount and Forest – directly east of Hiawatha (map)
*Refreshments provided (donated by Metropolitan Market and Zatz A Better Bagel)
*Please wear gloves, boots and old clothes as we remove garbage and invasive plants
*All ages welcome
*Rain or shine

Neighbor Sarah Schieron says they’d also like to thank SPD Community Police Team Officer Jon Flores “for participating with us this year and helping us haul out our garbage in an expedited manner through a noon pick-up.” Whatever time you can spare, the intrepid neighbors of Fairmount Ravine hope to see you Saturday.
