Summer Lincoln Creek Cleanup
Saturday August 27th,
Hopkins Hollow and West Basin
Meet at 35th and Congress, 4350 N 35th St.

That's a huge pile of trash!For some reason Lincoln Creek collects a lot of trash.  We think it's related to Milwaukee's legacy of redlining, unequal lending, a high level of absentee landlord properties and a low level of home ownership that only seems to get worse.  Whatever the reason, there is lots of trash but 3-4 times a year, we make a huge difference with our cleanups. Please consider lending a hand and sign up.
