Members of the Lincoln Boulevard Task Force, who have initiated efforts to upgrade the Lincoln Boulevard streetscape, will hold an Earth Day clean-up of the major Santa Monica corridor Saturday, April 20.
The event will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. along Lincoln, south of the 10 freeway to the Venice border. Multiple activities are scheduled throughout the day.
The clean-up was initiated by Killeen Pilon, a task force volunteer, who will serve as the event project manager. Volunteers are asked to email to fill a variety of roles including help prior to the event.
The event is part of Beautify Lincoln, under the direction of Evan Meyer, an Ocean Park Association board member and chair of the streetscape subcommittee of the task force.
The task force’s goal is to facilitate the transformation of Lincoln into an attractive, pedestrian-friendly, neighborhood-serving street that reflects the needs and desires of the neighborhood residents and local businesses, said task force chair Roger Swanson.
Volunteers are asked to bring their own brooms, work gloves, clippers and trowels to pick up litter and other debris and pull weeds along the sidewalks and grass strips of Lincoln.
The city will provide plastic bags for litter/debris and weeds and will arrange for pick up of the refuse.
In addition to having six teams removing trash and weeds on both sides of Lincoln, there will be live entertainment, music, and a variety of art events along Lincoln ranging from chalk sidewalk art to painting of murals, and an after-party.
