The Parks and Recreation Department invites the public to help clean up Union Plaza from 8 to 11 a.m. Saturday, July 15. Volunteers will meet at the parking lot near the Assurity overlook, north of N. 21st and "Q" streets. Parks and Recreation will provide training, tools and materials for the project, which will focus on cleaning landscape beds and collecting litter. Volunteers should bring gloves and wear sturdy shoes.
Registration is not required, but volunteers may register in advance by sending an email to ParksVolunteers@lincoln.ne.gov or visiting parks.lincoln.ne.gov/volunteer. (New volunteers are asked to complete the volunteer application form at this site.) If weather causes a postponement, registered participants will be notified of the rain date.
