Schedule

Join us in the morning, afternoon, or both!

Description

On Thursday, we have a walking cleanup opportunity at Loch Haven Park, an 80-acre site in Hoover. Loch Haven Park is situated in Little Shades Creek’s floodplain and floods after heavy storms. The City of Hoover is working towards opening this site as the Loch Haven Nature Preserve so that residents can hike along wooded trails through the beautiful forest. 

Volunteers will remove trash from the park. Hoover’s Parks and Rec says the site needs a little TLC, so come ready to find some gems! We expect to clear a lot of litter during this cleanup. Cahaba Brewing has graciously sponsored Thursday and invited all participants back to the brewery to refresh at the end of the day.

The contractor leading invasive species removal at Loch Haven Park will be onsite to demonstrate the importance of floodplain forests for the river’s health and the safety of our communities. 

We will meet at 9 am and work until lunch, then reconvene around 2 pm. The cleanup will conclude around 5 pm. Come to either or both of these sessions and join us after the afternoon session for a special get-together at Cahaba Brewing!

By volunteering, you will: 

  • Learn about the importance of green space for the health and benefit of human and animal life.
  • Help increase access to green space for everyone in Hoover and beyond 
  • Explore Hoover’s natural resources and new natural areas that are being prepared for its residents.

Space is limited. Click here to register a group or individual volunteer.
