Mt. Auburn Post-NEP Cleanup
The Neighborhood Enhancement Program (NEP) is a 90-day collaborative effort between the City of Cincinnati, neighborhood residents and community organizations. Keep Cincinnati Beautiful is a partner in the NEP, and to help promote sustainability, we're re-visiting last fall's NEP neighborhood, Mt. Auburn!
Volunteers will complete a variety of tasks including litter pick up, painting fire hydrants, cleaning up illegal dump sites, clearing overgrowth, landscaping and other cleanup tasks! We'll finish painting the handrails on the Main Street steps as well! (Other tasks TBD)
We're also working in cooperation with Keep America Beautiful's National Planting Day and will be participating by planting flowers!
From KAB: "National Planting Day celebrates the critical nature of native plants and trees in enhancing biodiversity and rebuilding ecosystems. Beautiful public places transcend aesthetic appeal to positively impact the lives of area residents, visitors, businesses and institutions. Green spaces restore our communities, helping to make them more environmentally healthy, socially connected, and economically sound."
