Boy Scout Troop 9: The boy scouts are tasked with picking up trash along North Oak. This runs from the north boundary of the park (by the bus shelter at Hill Street), to the south boundary (where the guardrail starts--this is also directly across the street from the south driveway at Cerner--previously known as the Farmland building). Parks Department would also like any downed limbs placed on the shoulder of N. Oak. It would probably be a good idea to designate an adult leader to be in charge overall and the Troops boy leadership to supervise.
Cub Scout Pack 9: The cub scouts are tasked with picking up trash and tree limbs from around Briarcliff School and the Briarcliff Nature Trail. Downed limbs should be brought to the top of the hill, or to the east entrance of the trail by the dead end street. The Pack should also designate a leader.
Claymont Homes Association Volunteers – participate in their own clean sweep of their neighborhood and beautify northern end of Briarcliff Parkway
