The City of Canal Winchester Storm Water Department will hold its ninth annual tire sweep and creek cleanup along Walnut Creek from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Saturday October 1. City staff will work with volunteers to remove tires in the Walnut Creek basin from Winchester Trail Elementary to Richardson Road, including the Walnut Woods Metro Park.
The event is being coordinated through the City of Canal Winchester Storm Water Department and Columbus and Franklin County Metro Parks. Metro Parks has graciously agreed to dispose of the tires collected by volunteers.
Volunteers may meet at the Metro Parks office at 6723 Lithopolis Road at 8:00am; others may park at Winchester Trail Elementary on Gender Road or Walnut Creek Park at the end of Parkview Drive and walk along the creek toward the Metro Park. Small watercraft are welcome and handy to move tires downstream to the metro park.
For further information, contact Mindi McConnell, Metro Parks Manager at 614-836-2683, or Canal Winchester Urban Forester Dick Miller at 614-834-5110, firstname.lastname@example.org .
