The kindergarten class of a new Lawrence elementary school is inviting you to help clean up local parks this weekend.

Operation Clean-Up Lawrence, being held from 1 to 3 p.m. this Saturday, Oct. 15, was organized by students at Limestone Community School, an alternative school that opened this fall with programming centered on “inspiring the next generation of innovators through project-based learning.”

After learning about climate change, the students were inspired to make a difference using the power of community action.

Supplies will be provided and trash will be sorted between what is recyclable and what is nonrecyclable. People can show up to any of the following parks to volunteer for Operation Clean-Up Lawrence:

  • Broken Arrow Park (2800 Louisiana St., Lawrence, KS 66046)
  • Dad Perry Park (1200 Monterey Way, Lawrence, KS 66049)
  • Deerfield Park (2801 W. Princeton Blvd., Lawrence, KS 66049)
