On August 29th 2015, over 150 volunteers joined together to clean up nearly 5 miles of Johnson Creek and the Springwater Corridor Trail. We also cleaned Mill Park, Tideman Johnson Park, and Johnson Creek Park.
First steps is to be assigned to one of the 14 teams. Here is the board with a description of each team.
