Our next regular meeting is on Thursday, November 13th, 7 pm, at the Oaklette United Methodist Church. Casey Shaw from the Elizabeth River Project will be talking to us about the brand new Restoration Plan for our Eastern Branch, including the Indian River. Come out and learn about the planned efforts including improved public access to the river, trails, River Star Home opportunities and more. There will be light refreshments and door prizes after the presentation.
We'll also be collecting donation for the Oaklette United Methodist Church food bank at this meeting. Just bring non-perishable goods to the meeting to help those less fortunate.
The following Saturday, November 15th, at 9:30 am we will be doing a cleanup along Indian River Road, meeting at the Post Office. We'll be cleaning up 1 mile of Indian River Road from the city limits at Wingfield Avenue all the way to MacDonald Road. This will help to spruce up the area, collect trash that will otherwise get washed into the river and impact wildlife, and give us the opportunity to interact with residents and businesses along Indian River Road. We're looking for a good turnout for this volunteer event, so please come out.
We still don't have a new date for the Native Plant garden planting at Indian River Park. We'll let you know as soon as we do.
