Tempe Cares 2014

This year’s Tempe Cares event will take place Saturday, March 1, 2014 starting at 8:00 a.m. We will be cleaning up sections of the 13-acre LoPiano Mesquite Bosque.

LoPiano Mesquite Bosque is located on the north side of the Loop 202 between College and Mille Avenues, just south of the Indian Bed Pump Ditch and Papago Park. Constructed in 1993 by volunteers from 26 schools, the Bosque offers trails for pedestrians, mountain bike enthusiasts and horseback riders in a mostly-untouched natural habitat.

Tempe Cares will be on site Saturday, March 1 to help thin non-native vegetative additions and to clean paths for pedestrians and other users. Volunteers of all age, both skilled and unskilled labor, are invited to come together to help transform the appearance of this neglected community space.

Organized by the Tempe Cares committee of Tempe Leadership, March 1 will bring together resources and volunteers to improve the quality of life for everyone in Tempe. Several hundred individuals, groups and businesses commit to volunteers, donations and in-kind resources to help make Tempe Cares day happen. If you are interested in participating or making a donation, please email tempecares@gmail.com with your information.

The day includes breakfast and snacks for all volunteers and typically runs from 8 a.m. to approximately 11 a.m. This one day event is a great way to get involved and make a difference in our community.
