CANCELED: Litter Cleanup - Earth Day

This program is canceled due to the weather. Check the event calendar for upcoming dates. 


Join us in keeping our natural spaces beautiful, sustainable, and litter free! Celebrate Earth Day with us by picking up and packing out litter.

Meet at the Department of Natural Resources Administration Offices near Carter Lake. We'll have an introduction, hand out cleanup supplies and then everyone will head out to Carter Lake, Flatiron Reservoir, Pinewood Reservoir and Ramsay-Shockey Open Space to remove unsightly litter from the land. Sign up as a group, family or individual.
