Clean-ups

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.

2018 First Saturday Clean Ups
These monthly events are open to all! Dates are subject to change.

Northgate Clean Up – Feb 3

Our next First Saturday Clean Up is on Saturday February 3rd at Northgate/Woodlake Access. This is an important annual clean up at which our volunteers pull thousands of pounds from abandoned camps. Recruit a neighbor, roll your sleeves up and help us maximize our impact.

Volunteers willing to bring a pickup truck are in high demand! Email volunteer@arpf.org for details!
