Spring Cleanup


 Annual Spring Cleanup

The Friends of Bertram are always looking for more “Friends” to help out at our Annual Spring Cleanup Day at the park.  In 2017 we are joining the YMCA for cleanup on Earth Day, April 22nd. Volunteers meet at the YMCA entrance at 9910 Briarwood Avenue to get directions on cleanup projects that need to be completed. All tools are provided.  We just ask that you bring gloves, bug spray and wear boots or shoes you don’t mind getting muddy!
Early Bird Cleanup begins at 9 AM. Volunteers should meet at the NEW Bertram Lake Chalet. Cleanup will take place along the roadside on County Road 39 and Briarwood Avenue. Gloves and bags provided. After the cleanup, get a tour of the new chalet and enjoy donuts and refreshments.
Afternoon Cleanup begins at 1 PM. Volunteers should meet at the YMCA parking lot. Cleanup will take place in the natural playground area clearing out brush for the “edible forest”. Gloves provided. Wear long pants and boots. Following the cleanup, stay for fun games and rock climbing at the new YMCA Camp Manitou.
If the weather holds out, it’s always a fun day to stay and have a picnic by the lake following the cleanup.  If you or your group (girl scouts, boy scouts, garden club, cycle club, etc.) wish to participate, please contact us by sending us an email.
