The Spring Cleanup of Lake Quannapowitt scheduled in April has been postponed until further notice. We all hope that necessary activity restrictions due to the Coronavirus will be lifted so that a safe cleanup can be organized at a later date and involve the Galvin Middle School 5thand 6thgraders along with families and adults.
But people can still help as individuals while we wait for more normal times. We are encouraging walkers and other visitors to the lake to come prepared to pick up litter they see and dispose of it through their regular scheduled home curbside trash and recyclables pickups. As a reminder, these individual efforts must safely follow all social distancing and hand washing recommendations.
