Spring Clean-Up is back 9 a.m. to noon on April 15, 2023!

Tell your friends and assemble your coworkers. Whatever site you choose to attend, you will be working with like-minded individuals with a common goal of cleaning the Parkway.

There are nine sites to choose from, some for all ages and some limited to volunteers over 18 where we will focus on cleaning up abandoned encampments:


*18+ only locations


Spring Clean-Up is our second-largest annual clean-up and helps remove thousands of pounds of trash from the Parkway. This is an opportunity for the entire family to make an impact on the community together and a great way to earn community service hours.


Spring Clean-Up is weather and water level dependent and will only be held if conditions are safe for volunteers. If the event is cancelled, those that have registered will be notified at least 24 hours in advance.

Want to bring a large group? Interested in being a site captain?
