Five Years and Still Rolling

As the darkness and cold around us grows, both climatically and politically, the Committee to Restore Shepherd Parkway gives thanks for all we have been able to accomplish together over the past five years.

We have held nearly 100 clean-up events with over 1,500 volunteers.  We've removed  hundreds of thousands of pounds of trash from the park, leaving it the cleanest it's been in decades.

In 20017, we will continue to hold our signature Community Clean-Ups every second Saturday of the month. In the new year we are moving the start time up half an hour to 10:30 am, but the end time remains 1 pm.

We will continue to meet in the picnic area near the corner of Martin Luther King and Malcolm X Avenues SE.

Mark your calendar for 10:30 to 1 on:

Saturday, January 14
Saturday, February 11
Saturday, March 11
Saturday, April 8
Saturday, May 13
Saturday, June 10
Saturday, July 8
Saturday, August 12
Saturday, September 9
Saturday, October 14
Saturday, November 11
Saturday, December 9

We continue our open invitation to colleges, schools, churches, offices and other groups who wish to leave their mark on Shepherd Parkway. You pick the date and time. Contact Nathan at to arrange your groups volunteer experience.
