Clark County Commissioner Tick Segerblom is partnering with the Get Outdoors Nevada and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to clean up the Flamingo Arroyo Trail between Lamb and Nellis Boulevard on Saturday, April 13, 9 a.m. to noon.
Volunteers are asked to gather in the north parking lot of Jerome Mack Middle School, 4250 Karen Ave., off Lamb Boulevard. By 9:30 a.m. rakes, shovels, gloves, trash bags, and other supplies will be handed out, and then volunteers will head out to clean up debris along the neighborhood's Flamingo Arroyo Trail.
"This is a great opportunity to meet your neighbors, participate in a service project and explore the Flamingo Arroyo Trail, which is a wonderful amenity in District E," said Commissioner Segerblom, who represents the neighborhood area. "I am happy to host this cleanup event with our community partners, and encourage residents to join us."
Anyone interested in volunteering for the cleanup can contact Beatriz Martinez at (702) 455-0560. Volunteers are encouraged to register online through the Get Outdoors Nevada's website at https://getoutdoorsnevada.org/events/. Metro's Southeast Area Command is a partner in the effort through its Safety Through Outreach and Prevention (STOP) Program. Participants are encouraged to wear sunscreen, a hat and closed-toe shoes. Anyone under 18 years old needs to be accompanied by an adult.
Clark County regularly teams up with community partners to host neighborhood cleanups. The County's Keep Clark County Clean website pages at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov offer a resource guide to tell residents how and where to dispose of everything from motor oil to old computers. The pages also provide links to resources for reporting graffiti and illegal dumping, getting involved in community cleanup efforts, and other information.
District E residents also can sign up to receive Commissioner Segerblom's free email newsletter via the County's website at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov to find out about more events and activities occurring in the District.
