River Sweep, Prairie Path and Great Western Trail Clean-Ups Canceled
Formal clean-up events have been canceled in the interest of public health but organizers encourage you to go out on your own - while observing safe social distance - to clean up trash and debris on a trail or waterway near you. Our collective efforts will make a big difference for the health of our planet.
Following the state shelter-in-place order, SCARCE will remain closed to the public through May 31st. We hope to re-open June 1st. Staff are available to answer
emails and calls. Please feel free to reach out!
