We need your help for the first environmental creek clean-up of the year.
Volunteers are needed on Sunday, April 2, 2017 from noon to 3 p.m. at Ralston Creek to help remove trash, invasive species and woody debris. These efforts help reduce flooding and erosion, while also improving water quality.
The group will meet and receive assignments shortly before noon on Sunday in the parking lot behind the Robert A. Lee Recreation Center, 220 S. Gilbert St. Anyone under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian sign a liability form at the start of the event.
Volunteers should come prepared to get dirty. Wear long pants, a long-sleeved shirt, and closed-toe shoes or boots. Hats are also recommended. The City will provide tools, gloves, and water.
Big Ten Rentals was started in 1981 with a $50 compact refrigerator. Initially run out of a University of Iowa dorm room, in 1986 Big Ten Rentals moved to a commercial location. That same year we became incorporated and expanded our inventory to include tents.
Today Big Ten Rentals’ inventories of tents, bleachers, flooring, audio and video equipment, lighting, food service equipment and more fill over 40,000 square feet.
Our vast tent inventory places us among the top providers of quality tents in Iowa and the Midwest. Our inventory includes the largest and most versatile tents in the industry. We can accommodate nearly any situation, with heating, air conditioning, lighting and flooring for the event.
We are also the largest provider of Interactive Entertainment in the state. Big Ten Rentals was one of the first in the country to introduce Interactive Entertainment. We have consistently been the leader in this market with over 20 cutting edge interactive inflatable games, carnival equipment, and more.
All in all, if we don’t have what you’re looking for, we can usually point you in the right direction. Please visit our other links under products and services, or stop by our store in Iowa City.
Crews will begin work on a project to replace the trail bridge located near the 1st Avenue entrance at Hickory Hill Park next week.
The project will remove the current 50-foot, wooden pedestrian bridge that was damaged by creek flooding in 2013. It will be replaced with a new, pre-engineered steel bridge. Work to stabilize the streambank and repair the trail will also be done.
That process will involve some tree removal both at the bridge site and to allow construction equipment access from 1st Avenue. This path was surveyed to minimize the loss of significant trees, however, some trees will still need to be removed. Crews will mark trees for both removal and preservation, and clear those that need to come down by April 1. The forested area surrounding the bridge will be restored at the conclusion of the construction project. Trees removed along the creek will likely not be replaced so as to improve the functioning of the creek in future rain events.
Portions of the trail will be closed for safety during the project. People will continue to have access to the park from the 7th Avenue entrance, however this portion of the trail will not be a loop trail until completion of the project. Specifically during tree clearing and when heavy equipment is on the trail for bridge work.
The project should be completed, weather contingent, in May 2017.
Interested in starting a vegetable or flower garden this spring, but don’t want to invest in large quantities of seeds? Do you have extra seeds that you'd like to share with other gardeners? Come to the Iowa City Public Library from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Sunday, April 2, for a Community Seed Share!
Sponsored by the Library and the Iowa State Extension Master Gardeners of Johnson County, this event is a great opportunity to share seeds you've saved or get some free seeds to try growing something new.

The event is free and open to all - you do not have to bring seeds to participate. Seeds will be available on a first come, first served basis, so attendees are encouraged to arrive early.
If you need disability-related accommodations in order to participate in this event, please contact the Library at 319-356-5200.

Skills that will be covered include uploading video files, adding transitions, trimming your clips, adding titles, and more. It’s suggested that participants for either of these classes attend Tools for Video Editing first.

Sign up for your community garden plot on Monday, April 3 and enjoy homegrown produce.
The Iowa City Council identified community gardens as a top priority, and ICPR is excited to announce the addition of two new locations for this growing season at Reno and Kiwanis Parks. This year, there is a new benefit for returning garden plot renters. Patrons who rented a garden plot in 2016 will have the opportunity to reserve the same plot in advance of the open registration. Forms were sent out to previous renters in February with a return deadline of March 20 to save their spot.
The 2017 Iowa City Community Garden Plot program open registration begins at 7:30 a.m. on Monday, April 3 at the Robert A. Lee Community Recreation Center, located at 220 South Gilbert Street. Plots are available on a first-come, first-serve basis, and interested gardeners are encouraged to arrive early on the first day of registration. The Recreation Center building will open at 6 a.m. Numbers will be available on the lower level of the building near the customer service desk. Staff will call those numbers in order beginning at 7:30 a.m. These numbers are to hold your place in line only; they do not represent your garden plot number assignment. Registrants will be required to sign a lease agreement to maintain their plot through Oct. 1.
