Each year, the Parkway Foundation facilitates two large-scale, Parkway-wide Clean Ups and monthly, site-specific Clean Ups. Spanning all reaches of the Parkway, Clean Ups remove mass amounts of debris from the Parkway in just a few hours. Removing debris makes the Parkway a more enjoyable and safe space, helps protect the river eco-system, and improves water quality.
