Keizer Civic Center cleanup volunteers needed March 11

The annual volunteer clean up of the Keizer Civic Center campus is scheduled for Saturday, March 11. Dozens of community volunteers are needed to help, starting at 9 a.m.

The cleanup, sponsored by the City of Keizer, is coordinated by the Claggett Creek Watershed Council and hosted by the Rotary Club of Keizer.

Volunteers will gather trimmings from shrubs, trees and grasses, removing weeds, and dump the collected debris into a drop box, donated by Loren’s Sanitation of Keizer.  

The clean up will proceed come rain or shine. Volunteers are encouraged to bring work gloves, work shoes and any tools that can help, such as rakes and clippers. Volunteers should dress for the weather.

The day’s activities are overseen by Mark Caillier, of the Claggett Creek Watershed Council. Caillier said with they needed 100 volunteers, the clean up will take only about two to three hours.

Refreshments will be provided after the clean up is completed.
