#4pieces – Cleanup Aurora’s Highline Canal!
Join #4pieces in our first-ever local clean-up event!
The High Line Canal Cleanup is a volunteer event to clear trash from the 11-mile stretch of canal that runs through Aurora. The goal for the day is to reduce the amount of trash from the canal that enters Sand and Toll Gate creeks in Aurora. It is also an opportunity to learn about the problems with littering and the importance of protecting and caring for our waterways by preventing pollution.
The next High Line Canal Cleanup will be held Saturday, March 15 (weather make-up day March 22). Volunteers are needed for this one-day event. Volunteer check-in will take place at the Community College of Aurora’s Student Center at 8 a.m. on event day. If you are affiliated with scouting, youth or church groups that are looking for ways to make a difference in their community this is a perfect opportunity. Aurora is a Take Pride In America (TPIA) city. A national partnership established by the U.S. Department of the Interior that aims to engage, support and recognize volunteers, TPIA works to improve our public lands.
