Johnson Creek cleanup event, October FOTJP work party

From Marianne Colgrove:

Hi all Friends of Tideman Johnson!

I hope you’re enjoying this off-again-on-again summer we’re having. My tomatoes are confused but the weeds are growing like crazy!

Mark your calendars for these upcoming events:

Saturday August 28th, Johnson Creek Cleanup (map it) 9 a.m. – noon, followed by post-clean up party

Once again, we are partnering with the Overland Park Coalition to help clean up trash from Johnson Creek. Meet up at Mill Park (corner of Overland and Linwood ) between 8 and 9 am to sign up and pick the team you want to work on. There will be three teams in Tideman Johnson – two in the creek and one on the ground in the park itself. Bring gloves and boots that you don’t mind getting wet. After the clean-up, we’ll reconvene at Mill Park for the post-clean up party.

Friends of Tideman Johnson, First Saturday of the month, starting October 2nd, 9 a.m. – noon at Tideman Johnson Park (map it)

We have received another grant from the Community Watershed Stewardship Program so we can continue restoration efforts in Tideman Johnson Park. We’ll be focusing on areas in the woodland and along the Springwater Trail where so they’ll be ready for planting in the winter.

We’re looking forward to another good year in Tideman Johnson – we hope to see you out there!
