Annual spring river cleanup

River CleanupMcPherson Town residents participated in Five Rivers MetroParks’ Adopt-A-Park event on April 18 to clean up the northern banks of the Great Miami River bordering the neighborhood. About 20 neighbors joined forces to pick up debris and litter along the river from Main Street to I-75.

In addition to supporting Adopt-a-Park, the effort also supported an experiment with the Miami Conservancy District to see whether letting grass grow along the river’s edge reduces the goose droppings on the adjacent Great Miami Bikeway. 2014’s trial seemed to be effective. We’re looking for more success in 2015!
