Apr. 21st, 2013 - Roadside Cleanup

Humanists Doing Good will be cleaning up our section of the I-70 Business Loop on April 21st as our contribution for Earth Day. Our section of road is located a little west of the Mesa Mall and extends to the I-70 overpass. We'll meet at 8:45 am to distribute safety jackets and trash bags so that we can begin at 9:00 am. We recommend bringing gloves and sturdy footwear. You will encounter brush, tall grasses, uneven terrain, and a variety of litter (including possibly sharp objects). Consider layered clothing to adjust to the weather. We will also likely go somewhere afterward for lunch for anyone who would like to join us. If you would like to participate, please let us know so we are sure to have enough safety jackets for everyone. Participants are required to watch the following safety videos before attending: http://www.coloradodot.info/programs/adopt-a-highway/safety-videos.html
