The campus community and residents are invited to join forces later this month to clean up Lake Artemesia, for the first Good Neighbor Day.
The 's Division of Administrative Affairs is organizing the event, when residents are invited to work with UMd. faculty, staff and students to clean up and other parts of the Paint Branch Trail.
Some think the first-time event should be bigger, said Gloria Aparicio Blackwell, associate director for community relations at UMd. She spoke at Tuesday's mayor and council meeting.
"But I think it's better to start from something little and make it grow," she said, noting that she hopes Good Neighbor Day will become an annual event.
Volunteers will pick up litter around Lake Artemesia and paint over graffiti under the nearby bridge, Blackwell said.
Those interested in helping should sign up here, and meet at the at 8 a.m. Saturday, March 31. Equipment to pick up litter and paint supplies will be provided.
The event will be sponsored by , , Papa John's, the Prince George's Property Owners Association, Maryland Milestones and MSI Universal.
