Join us for the 10th annual community litter cleanup, Earth Day GreenUp on March 21, 2020. Please pre-register for the park of your choosing by March 9th to ensure equipment for your group. Connect with your community and the outdoors while bagging litter from streets, pathways and streams.
You gather your friends and we provide the bags! Annually, volunteers remove 4500 pounds of litter or 76 of our 96-gallon trash carts.
Check-in: 8 to 10 a.m.
Cleanup: 8 to 11 a.m.
Celebration: 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Whether participating as an individual or group, everyone must sign a waiver. Online pre-registration includes a waiver form.
If you miss pre-registration, you may sign a waiver at check-in. Participants under the age of 18 must have a waiver signed by a parent or guardian.
