Maplewood Clean Sweep Project #4 is perfect for seniors, or just someone who wants a mellow walk along the gorge- picking up litter along the Genesee River Trail from the Rose Garden north to the pedestrian bridge.
Second CLEAN SWEEP project is the brand new garden area at Dewey and Driving Park, led by the Maplewood Garden Team’s Sarah Burton! The Team managed to get in some bulbs and mums before the snow flew last fall, and now it needs mulch and some more plantings. Look at how well those bulbs sprouted!
Clean Sweep is coming on April 27th, and we need YOU to volunteer! Maplewood has seven projects this year, and we’ll give you details on them in the upcoming days. The first one is cleaning up the Gorge Trail with Mr. Maplewood himself- Bob Stevenson. You’ll be working hard, but also learn a lot about Maplewood and the gorge!
Starting on Monday 04/15/13 Lu Engineering will be inspecting the foot bridge that crosses the gorge near the zoo. They will be repelling down at times and checking on the integrity of the bridge and adjacent structures leading up to the bridge. The company will be in the area for about two weeks. They will not be doing any sort of demolition. Just in case you see people hanging off the bridge, hopefully it will be them!
The ballots for the MNA Board of Directors’ election are due April 3rd. They can be mailed to the MNA office at 1286 Dewey Ave., Rochester, NY 14613 or presented at the MNA Town Hall Meeting on April 3rd at 7:00 pm.
