This event is part of Keep America Beautiful’s Great American Cleanup and the Pine Brook Community Revitalization Project. 

Volunteers will meet up at Kevin’s Worldwide, 710 Capouse Ave. at 10:00 a.m. before splitting into teams to clean up Capouse Ave and Olive St, near the RR and trailhead. Supplies will be provided, as well as water and snacks.

A second cleanup at the pocket park at 1371 Capouse Ave. is in partnership with Leadership Lackawanna. Participants will meet at the parklet, and will get to work mowing, weed whacking, and cleaning up the site. Equipment is provided by the NeighborWorks Mobile Tool Kit.
