About this event
Natural Dividends invites you to join our community cleanup and gathering at the GastroPark on Saturday, September 18th at noon.
Bring your family and friends for good eats, cold beer, fun activities, while learning from your community at this sustainability event. Come help us take care of our local natural spaces on a local trash clean-up “Negative Net Hiking” while learning about ways to positively impact the environment. Support your local ecosystem and learn about how you can protect natural resources from local experts.
All are welcome and participation is free!
This event is perfect for people who love nature and are excited to learn more and take action to protect and conserve it, while also getting involved with our local community.
This event will include two primary activities. We will start with our Negative Net Hiking cleanup, while throughout the event you can learn from local organizations and enjoy some good eats at the Gastropark.
Join us for a Negative Net Hiking walk within the Elmwood/New Park area, within walking distance from the Gastropark event location. Help our neighborhood become an even more enjoyable space for all those that use and see your actions in real-time. Engage with us virtually and track your positive impact using the Litterati app to help make our impact measurable.
Learn from organizations and individuals already taking action in our community about how you can start living a more sustainable life, waste less, and start giving back to nature today.
Also, we will also be giving away some prizes from local businesses!
Together, we can make small everyday changes that Increase Nature’s Share and leave a lasting impact on our local neighborhood, so let’s do it!
