Clark County Commissioner Jim Gibson and Henderson Councilwoman Michelle Romero are hosting a trail cleanup from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 21, on the East Lake Mead Parkway Trail. Volunteers are encouraged to register online for the East Lake Mead Trail Cleanup at https://tinyurl.com/4mmtthp2.
Residents and volunteers are asked to gather at 9 a.m. at Mountain Lake Park, located at 1020 Golda Way, just west of Lake Las Vegas Parkway. At 9:30 a.m. rakes, shovels, gloves, trash bags and other supplies will be handed out, and then volunteers will head out onto the trail to clear trash and debris. There is a tunnel located on the north end of Mountain Lake Park that volunteers can use to safely access the trail on the south side of East Lake Mead Parkway.
“I am happy to host this cleanup with the City of Henderson and Councilwoman Romero,” said Commissioner Gibson, whose Commission District G includes the area. “It’s a wonderful opportunity to spend some time outside and meet other volunteers in our community.”
“Henderson residents place a high value on trails and open space and we are pleased to host a cleanup that will help maintain this marvelous trail for hikers, cyclists and outdoor enthusiasts,” said Councilwoman Michelle Romero. “Henderson is fortunate to have so many residents and business owners that are willing to volunteer their time to keep our community beautiful.”
