The Como Community Council is coordinating two different types of Como Lake Clean-Up events in May.

  • An in-person clean-up on Saturday May 22: Get together with others in the community to clean trash from the lake surface or shoreline between 9 a.m.-noon. We’ll meet near the dock on the lake side of the Lakeside Pavilion.
  • A weeklong “do it yourself” opportunity from Saturday May 22 through Friday May 28: You (and your own circle of friends, neighbors, or family) clean up trash and debris on your own schedule.

Whichever option you choose, register in advance to help us plan. And, whichever option you choose, you are welcome to borrow tools (grabbers, rakes, buckets) while our supplies last. We’ll also have plenty of disposable supplies (trash bags, nitrile gloves) for you to use. Or, feel free to provide your own gear.

If you want to borrow tools or pick up supplies, stop by the lower level of the Pavilion any time between 9 a.m. and noon on May 22. You then can return tools to the Historic Streetcar Station on Saturday May 29 from 9-11 a.m.

(A partnership grant from the Capital Region Watershed District makes this happen.)
