Group to clean up Baldwin’s Silver Lake Park on Sunday


Ahead of Earth Day 2021, local elected officials invite residents, park lovers and environmentalists to join them in giving Baldwin’s Silver Lake Park a little TLC during an upcoming community clean-up.

Nassau County Legislator Debra Mulé is co-sponsoring the Sunday, April 18 event alongside Nassau County Executive and Baldwinite Laura Curran, State Senator Todd Kaminsky, State Assemblywoman Judy Griffin, Sanitary District No. 2, the Baldwin Chamber of Commerce, the Baldwin Civic Association, Operation S.P.L.A.S.H., the Boy Scouts of America and GalaFresh Farms Supermarkets.

Organizers will provide garbage bags and gloves and participants are encouraged to bring pokers, rakes, grabbers and other supplemental tools.

To safeguard against ticks and other hazards, attendees are encouraged to wear long sleeves, pants, socks and other protective attire. Masks will be required in accordance with Covid-19 prevention protocols.

The clean-up is scheduled to run from 10 a.m. to noon at Silver Lake Park, located on Foxhurst Road in Baldwin.
