Earth Day Cleanup on Doan Brook

Turns out, there’s more to Earth Day than just stocking up on eco-friendly household products. Some people — like members of the Doan Brook Watershed Partnership and the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes — actually get out there and interact with Ma Nature. They would be happy to have your help today as they perform their annual spring cleaning of the Doan Brook corridor between Cleveland and Shaker Heights. “We’ll be removing anything from the watershed that could get into the lake and affect our drinking water,” says organizer Mary Ryan. “That includes plastic bags, bottles, food wrappers, Styrofoam, coffee cups…all the usual trash you see along the roads.” All ages are welcome to pitch in, although Ryan suggests that familes with young’uns might want to report for duty at the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes, where the terrain is gentler. “On the other hand, trash warriors will probably enjoy working out of the Rockefeller Park Lagoon Gazebo.” Gloves, trash bags, and light refreshments will be provided; your responsibility is to wear sturdy, waterproof footwear. The cleanup runs from 1 to 4 p.m. Let them know you’re coming by calling Ryan at 216-321-5935, ext. 234. You'll find them at 2600 South Park Blvd., Shaker Heights or at East 105th at Martin Luther King Dr.
