DeKALB – Volunteers are going to gather at 8 a.m. Sunday to clear garbage from the Nature Trail and the nearby stream.

The trail has been exposed to more litter since trees and other foliage were cut from the area last year, organizers said. The litter has gathered in a stream that empties into the Kishwaukee River.

Volunteers should wear boots and gloves; bags will be provided. Volunteers should gather at Castle Bank at Greenwood Acres Drive and Sycamore Road in DeKalb.
