May be an image of nature and treePublic Health Professor, Brian Schaefer, is leading a “street clean-up” with the support of the Dean’s Office. We’ll meet in front of the SPHIS building at 1pm and go from there. Our goal is to make E. Gray Street more walkable for our students and employees. Many people park and walk along Gray Street and the sidewalk is nearly impassable in sections because of overgrowth, litter, and debris. While this clearly falls outside of formal faculty/staff service assignments, this seems like a good way to push for a little bit of neighborhood clean-up in a timely manner. We will have water available for volunteers along with garbage bags. UofL physical plant has agreed to help out by providing waste removal. The following tools will be provided: Weed eater, Hedge trimmers, Tree pruner, Shovels, Rake, Broom, Garden hoe. Others can bring their own tools as well. It’s recommended that folks bring gloves and safety glasses if they plan to use power tools.
