This is a yearly event, join us next year and help make our environment better.

This was a very successful day, with 126 volunteers signing in. We removed Ivy and Blackberries, a lot of liter and trash and we improved the sidewalks on two sites, East 34th and First Creek and also at Fairbanks and First Creek. Thank you to everyone who participated, good work!
