Over the past 25 years, the Saint Paul Parks and Recreation Department has established a tradition of hosting an annual Spring Parks Cleanup event to collect the trash that has accumulated over the winter. Now, with the help of the Saint Paul Public Works Department and their Come Clean! Neighborhood Litter Campaign, the event has transformed into a citywide effort to clean our parks, neighborhoods, and streets. Without the help of volunteers, trash accumulates in many areas, polluting lakes and rivers, and detracting from the beauty of our community. This event is a fun and effective way to improve our natural environment while also contributing to the overall beautification of Saint Paul.
In order to reach our goal of a 1000 volunteers, we need your help! Please share this information with any volunteers or groups that may be interested in participating.
