City of Cuyahoga Falls Announces 2019 Great American River Day Cleanup and Kids-to-Parks Day

May 08, 2019

Mayor Don Walters is pleased to announce that the City of Cuyahoga Falls is coordinating a 2019 Great American River Day Cleanup and Beautification Project.  The project is planned for Saturday, May 18 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Volunteers will clean up litter, pull garlic mustard, and plant flowers and trees at designated public grounds locations. The event will be held in conjunction with 2019 Kids-to-Parks-Day, a national day of outdoor play.

Kids-to-Parks Day is a national day of outdoor play designed to connect kids and families with their local, state, and national parks. By discovering our public lands, kids will learn about park stewardship, outdoor recreation, and history.  This year, Cuyahoga Falls kids and their families are asked to participate in the 2019 Great American River Day Cleanup, which will help teach the next generation to appreciate our public lands. Those interested in volunteering are asked to register by Wednesday, May 15 by emailing mcclearyrm@cityofcf.com. Registration is required.

A sincere “Thank You” is extended to 2019 Great American River Day Cleanup and Beautification Project partners and sponsors: Ohio EPA, Keep America Beautiful, Keep Ohio Beautiful, Friends of the Crooked River, State Road Donato’s, the City of Cuyahoga Falls Service Department, and the Cuyahoga Falls Parks & Recreation Department.
