The Friends of Sligo Creek are hosting this Fall’s Sweep the Creek on Saturday, September 30, from 9-11 am and on Sunday, October 1, from 1-3pm. The FSC welcome individuals, groups, families, and students—students can receive service-learning credit for their work (we provide the forms and signatures). We provide gloves, bags, water, and guidance on what help is most needed in each section. All you need to bring is your community spirit—and a willingness to get a little wet and dirty! There is no need to sign up ahead of time, but if you will be bringing a group or have questions, it is best to contact the Sweep Coordinator ahead of time. For more information and maps, go to
