Meet at the Otway Community Church, 6773 State Route 73, Otway, OH  to set up potluck dishes (Crock pots, refrigerated items etc). Once everyone has arrived we will travel by car to the Brush Creek Township Community Park. Teams will set out to clean up a designated section of roadside and if enough volunteers are present a separate crew will clean up the area around the Gladys Riley Preserve. After about 90 minutes of cleanup we reconvene at the church for a potluck meal, volunteer appreciation awards and a short business meeting.  Volunteers are welcome to leave after the cleanup, join us for potluck, meeting etc.  Trash bags, buckets, tongs and safety vests are provided. More information can found at the Friends of Scioto Brush Creek’s Facebook.

 What to Bring:

  • A bottle of drinking water for the day
  • A pot luck dish if you will be staying afterward
  • Sturdy shoes/boots
  • Work gloves
  • Hat and/or rain gear if needed
