Cleanup day will be held on Saturday, April 26
Loveland, Oh. - The City of Loveland’s 2014 Great American Cleanup day will be held on Saturday, April 26, starting at 9AM at the Little Miami, Inc. Scenic River & Trail Center, 211 Railroad Avenue next to Nisbet Park in historic downtown Loveland. All members of the community are welcomed and encouraged to volunteer their time to help clean up our community. Supplies, drinks, and tee-shirts are provided. Members of the Loveland Tree and Environment Committee will be organizing the cleanup.
The City of Loveland’s Tree and Environment Committee has participated in the Great American Cleanup for many years. Committee Chairman Gary Benesh said, “Loveland is renowned for the Scenic River, bike trail, and many nature preserves and parks. I hope for a great turnout to help keep these natural assets clean and attractive.”
Little Miami, Inc. (LMI) is a local river conservation organization dedicated to the protection of Ohio’s first designated State and National Wild and Scenic River that runs through our downtown. The Little Miami River was designated as such in 1969. LMI first joined with the City’s Tree and Environment Committee for the cleanup event in 2009.
The Great American Cleanup is a Cincinnati area-wide event brought locally by Keep Cincinnati Beautiful. This affiliation from the Cincinnati area started back in 1978. It is the nation’s largest community improvement program, and involves an estimated 2.8 million volunteers and attendees.
