A baker’s dozen from Ivy Ridge Green — with help from Chris Leswing and Sarah Francis from Lower Merion — hit the trial yesterday for the second “Two Hours on Tuesday” cleanup.
Thank you all for an unbelievable amount of work in a short stretch. Our three teams:
- Cleaned the shrubs and ivy off of the banks of the out-of-use R6 along Canton Street from Wright to Leverington Avenue
- Removed trash, rocks and debris from the trail bed to make this stretch mowable for neighbors.
- Cleared the knotweed and overgrowth off of High Street, where local developer (and trail supporter) Jerry Logue is set to break ground on his next set of houses along the Ivy Ridge line.
- Pruned back the cherry trees along Leverington Avenue to open up the pocket park beneath the old rail bridge and return the sidewalk to folks headed between Ivy Ridge and Main Street.
Nice work! It looks fantastic out there.
Our next “Two on Tuesday” is August 4th at Fountain Street Steps. Blaise Syrnick will lead a cleanup of the landscaping and planting job many of you contributed to this spring.
On August 22nd we will be back on the Trail with Pete D’Amico’s rugby squad.
