Goulbourn Museum is seeking the community’s help to get its site in ship shape for the summer season.

The Museum has registered with the GLAD Cleaning the Capital campaign and site cleanup will take place on Tuesday, May 22nd from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The rain date is Wednesday, May 23rd.

Help will be needed sweeping sidewalks, picking up litter, raking and seeding the lawn, pruning shrubs, prepping garden beds and planting. There will be a supply of plastic gloves but we suggest bringing your own garden gloves if you have them.

All cleanup contributions are welcome, even if you can just come for an hour! A pizza lunch will be provided for all volunteers.
