Leschi Area Stairway Cleanup
3rd Saturday of month is a stairway clean-up headed up by the Leschi Community Council Board.
Leschi has 31 public stairways that connect streets on steep hills. In some cases, neighbors keep them free of litter and overhanging branches. In other areas, help is needed. Bring brooms, pruners, & flat-bottom shovels are good for cleaning moss off stairs. 10-12 noon.
Check the Event Calendar to find the next stairway cleanup event.
