Do you like to walk? Want to help make a difference in what people see along M-55? Will you help keep birds and other animals from eating unhealthy items or possibly getting hit by cars? YES!!
It is time to plan the AVA twice annual highway clean up event. Last year AVA collected a total 30 bags of trash during the spring and fall clean up times. (State wide that ends up being 75,000 bags in 2016.) How long did it take? About two and a half hours total or just a bit over an hour each time. Not bad for a walk in the sun with friends. 🙂
When : John J. Audubon’s Birthday Anniversary!! 11-12:00, Wednesday, April 26, 2017 Weather permitting.
Where: M-55 and Sand Lake Road parking area. That is 12 miles west of US-23 intersection. Only 5 miles east of M-65 intersection.
What: After a short safety review head out in teams in a high visibility vest to walk well off the highway for 1/2 mile, cross M-55 and walk back. Pick up trash as you walk. TaDa! Done. (Almost)
To be Totally DONE – Have a light lunch of some sort at Sue and Larry’s…. could be soups if it’s cool, may be sloppy joes if it’s warm.
Reminders – Bring gloves, wear a hat with a visor or sunglasses, sturdy shoes or hiking boots are good as are ‘picker uppers’ if you have one! A day or two prior, please be sure to view the safety video, even experienced helpers, at www.michigan.gov/adotablehighway
