Half the group will work in the Highland Park area and half will walk or be transported nearby to the Burroughs neighborhood.

After we get done working you can:
1. Go home
2. Have a parent drive you to the zoo
3. Walk to the zoo and enter through the Spencer St employee's gate.

More Details
  • People who signed up online by the deadline will get first dibs on the shirts
  • We will likely be picking up trash; the United Way is  providing gloves but you might want to bring your own
  • Dress for the occasion; don't wear your best outfit!
  • We need a few more parent chaperones
  • Group picture before we start the projects!
Zoo Details
  • If you go to the zoo you can stay as late as you want.
  • Parents who chaperoned can get in too.
  • You can park for free at the zoo lot off the trail but the lot on Broadway is owned by the city of Toledo and you will have to pay. 
  • I'd park in the free lot on the Trail side and take a nice walk through the zoo.
The weather looks fantastic!
