Join the CState Great Parks clean-up crew on the Lunken Trail on Oct. 15

Each Fall and Spring, Cincinnati State faculty, staff, and students work in partnership with the Great Parks of Hamilton County to give back to our community (and give a hand to Mother Nature). 

On Saturday, October 15, CState volunteers will be cleaning up trash and debris on the Lunken Trail at Otto Armleder Park (near Lunken Airport).

Event organizer Milene Donlin said, “Joining the Great Parks clean-up is a great way to give back, connect with others in our Cincinnati State community, and show that you are CState proud. The Lunken Trail is a newly acquired area for Great Parks and they appreciate our help in making the location clean and healthy for visitors.”

  • The Otto Armleder Park is located at 5057 Wooster Pike (45226). When you arrive at the park, head right and look for the shelter at the end of the dog park parking lot. The CState group will meet at the shelter.
  • Breakfast treats and drinks will be available starting at 9:30 a.m., and clean-up work will start at 10 a.m. and should wrap up by 1 p.m. at the latest. However, if you need to leave earlier, it’s OK to come and help for a shorter time.
  • All materials needed will be provided by Great Parks, but feel free to bring your own gloves and “picker-upper tools” if you have them.
  • On event day, wear Cincinnati State gear that is appropriate for the weather and for moving through brush and vegetation, and don’t forget comfortable, closed-toe shoes.
  • If needed, the rain date for the event is Saturday, Oct. 29.

All Cincinnati State students, faculty, and staff members– and family members or friends of CState students and employees– are welcome to register and join the group. No special training is required, and children are welcome also. (Kids under 14 must be accompanied by an adult.)
