On Saturday May 5, from 9:00 – 12 noon, Melrose’s Ell Pond Improvement Council (EPIC), in collaboration with MUUC’s Green Sanctuary Committee, will sponsor an annual cleanup and restoration day at the Memorial Knoll shoreline across from the Veterans Memorial Middle School.
Volunteers assist in shrub planting, invasive species removal, litter pick-up and other activities. Volunteers need to bring work gloves and can chose to bring along some yard tools. Canoes and kayaks are encouraged to help with hard-to-reach areas like the Main Street shoreline. Children are welcome! (youngsters must be accompanied by an adult)
The event will be rescheduled if it’s raining hard.
