Join A Local Cleanup

Day 25

Put Me In, Coach!

Give back by getting outside and joining a local cleanup or starting your own.

If you’re interested in joining a cleanup but aren’t sure where to look, check with your local Parks and Recreation department. You can also look into conservation organizations, nature centers and other community resources in your area. Often, organizations will host cleanup events in local parks, neighborhoods and beaches.

Thinking about hosting your own cleanup? Make it a larger-scale effort by recruiting volunteers. Post flyers in community centers, and create a Facebook event to get the word out. Make sure to bring extra supplies for folks who show up empty-handed.
