Local members of the Lyoness Greenfinity Foundation have organized a cleanup of the Bear Creek Greenway today.

More than 120 Lyoness members have volunteered for the Greenway cleanup, which will begin with tasks being assigned at 2 p.m. at Railroad Park in north Medford.

The effort will include cleaning and picking up trash from US Cellular Fields in south Medford to an area north of Railroad Park, a 6-mile stretch. Volunteers will also clear away overgrown blackberries along 10th and Cottage streets in Medford.

To reach Railroad Park, take Table Rock Road off North Pacific Highway, then turn right on Berrydale Avenue at the entrance to the city fire station.
