Earth Day Big River Clean Up Saturday April 18th

What: Big River Earth Day Cleanup
When: Saturday April 18th, 2020 from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm
Where: Park-n-Ride off Exit 6a of I-95 in West Greenwich, RI

For the 12th year in a row Ocean State Jeepsters will be partnering with the West Greenwich Conservation Commission and the RI chapter of the New England Mountain Bike Association to host an Earth Day cleanup on Saturday April 18th, 2020 at the Big River management area in West Greenwich, RI. Trucks or Trailers may come in more handy than a Jeep. I walk Ninja and Shadow back there regularly and would highly recommend bringing a bug repellent made for ticks. Bags and gloves will be provided.

Immediately following the cleanup lunch will be provided at the nearby Tavern on the Hill

The following video from a previous year’s clean-up was produced by our friend Peter from the RI chapter of the New England Mountain Bike Association and provides a good idea of what this event is about:

By tradition, OSJ has made a cash donation to help offset the cost of the cleanup (t-shirts, supplies, lunch). Our goal this year is to donate a minimum of $300. Reaching our goal of $300 should be a piece of cake. A motion is currently posted under the members lounge for a club donation.
