Nature Fridays: CleanUp Day


Join hands with us to maintain the beauty of our neighborhood! National CleanUp Day shines a light on environmental well-being and ensures our roads and paths remain pristine. Let's stop litter from finding its way into our rivers or jeopardizing our precious wildlife, while also safeguarding water treatment facilities. Be a part of our community cleanup, dedicated to preserving the charm, safety, and health of our shared spaces. As we stroll alongside the river, you'll discover ways to shield our planet, all while gathering litter that crosses our path. Plus, young adventurers will work their magic by transforming everyday litter into art through our fantastic litter critter project!
