City of Lee's Summit Organizes Cleanup of Deer Valley Park and Stream on November 13

City of Lee's Summit Organizes Cleanup of Deer Valley Park and Stream on November 13

Nov. 5, 2010

By Melisa Bedford Fears

In an effort to keep our streams and parks clean of debris, the City of Lee’s Summit Public Works Department, in partnership with the Lee’s Summit Parks & Recreation Department and the Beautification Commission, is organizing a combined “Sweep the Summit” and “Stream Team” event at Deer Valley Park.

Volunteers from the community are needed for the cleanup event scheduled from 10 a.m. to noon on November 13. Trash and litter on stream banks and in parks is unsightly, unsanitary, and unsafe for both humans and wildlife. Organic material, such as yard waste, food and leaves are also unacceptable to dump along stream banks. These materials threaten the water quality of streams by decomposing and eliminating critical, life-giving oxygen from the water.

The “Sweep the Summit” and “Stream Team” volunteers will meet at Deer Valley Park, 1400 NE Neawanna Dr., in Lee’s Summit at 10 a.m. to receive instructions and supplies – maps, gloves, vests, bags, etc. Waders or water resistant boots are recommended for those participating in stream cleanup efforts.

The actual cleanup efforts will begin at 10 a.m. and lunch will be served by noon at Deer Valley Park.

For more information about the combined “Sweep the Summit” and “Stream Team” event, contact the City’s Environmental Programs Coordinator Kara Taylor at (816) 969-1804.
