Hey, it’s officially Fall! That means the plants will shortly die back and reveal heaps of litter on the Route 378 on/off ramps at 3rd Avenue and Union Blvd. This weekend, Saturday October 2nd, we plan on starting to do something about it by getting at some of that litter.

If you have a few hours to spare, get out those boots, long pants, long sleeves and bring your garden gloves and meet us under the bridge on West Union Blvd where Route 378 passes over to haul out some trash and recyclables and start to turn this site around. There are a few small spots we would actually like to plant some azaleas and rhododendron but we have a ways to go to get to that point yet. First up is getting rid of the trash and chopping back the wild growth. In a couple weeks we can have another go at it when the plants are completely done and we can really get in there.

ALSO, up on the entrance and exit ramp at 3rd Avenue, there is trash and plant debris all the way to the Hill to Hill Bridge. What does this say to visitors to Bethlehem? Let’s get this area cleaned up. If you have a broom, shovel and are an adult (no kids – car traffic is an issue) then we could use your help here.

Coffee and donuts will be provided for this first of Fall event. See you at 9am for a few hours beautifying Bethlehem.
