Announcing the 2012 Spring Jim Creek Cleanup will be on May 19th this year.
If you've been there before, come on back for the fun. We are adding a fund raiser for Breast Cancer Focus and adding a little extra to the door prize drawing.
If you haven't come out before, we are basing out of the Pavilion parking area (From Palmer take the Old Glenn Rd through Butte to Sullivan Rd - From the Glenn Hwy, take the Knik River Road exit approx 8 miles, cross the bridge, to Sullivan Rd. Sullivan Rd is marked by the Alaska Raceway signs, drive 1.25 miles past the Raceway and the parking area will be on the right) We will have people managing the parking that day, please follow their directions!
The Cleanup will start at 10 AM, sign in, get some bags and head out to get some trash! When your bags are full we have a dumpster at the Pavilion. Drop off the trash, get some more bags and repeat! We will start serving a hamburger/hot dog/chips lunch at noon. In the afternoon we will have drawings for door prizes, all donated by area businesses.
It makes a great way to check out your machinery after the winter, get together with family and friends, teach the little ones not to litter - and makes the main ATV riding area in Alaska look GREAT!
This year is the 10th Spring Jim Creek Cleanup, every year we get more people and less trash, maybe someday we won't have to do it - But it is a fun event anyway!
Come on out. If you've stopped coming to Jim Creek in the past - Come see what it is like now.
