FLOW has seven great events planned in March and April.

If you want to lend a hand to programs that are ready for you to participate, here’s a great list to choose from!

March 26th: Slyh Run Restoration at Cranbrook Elementary
Details: 10am -12:30 pm, 908 Bricker Blvd, Columbus OH, 43221
We will be removing invasive bush honeysuckle from the south side of Slyh Run on the school grounds. You can either help cut the honeysuckle or drag it to the brush pile. We need lots of help in getting almost 940 feet of stream corridor cleared of invasives. We will supply the tools and the gloves.
(No additional volunteers needed.)

March 31st: FLOW day at Lucky’s Market
Details: All Day! Lucky’s Market, 2770 North High Street, Columbus, OH 43202
When you shop at Lucky’s Market on March 31st, FLOW will receive 10% of the sales. FLOW will use these funds to plant trees, clean up rivers, plant gardens, and continue to educate our community about our environment. Our goal is to raise $7,000 so please start your shopping list!
