Default River Valley/Capital City Clean-Up - May 6

REMINDER!



About River Valley Clean Up
For the past 24 years, thousands of city residents have volunteered their time each spring to clean up our river valley park system. After all, a clean and safe Edmonton is a shared responsibility.

In 2011, 122 groups, consisting of 3,006 volunteers, scoured the parks system as well as the shoreline of the North Saskatchewan River, picking up litter.

If you share this passion for Edmontonís gorgeous natural resource, talk to friends, family, co-workers or community members about picking a day during our warm-weather months to conduct a cleanup.

This year the 25th Annual River Valley Clean Up kicks off on Sunday, May 6. Watch this page for the kick-off location and join us for the fun. You can choose your own area, or let us provide you with a site. We also supply gloves and garbage bags. If you and your group are keen to clean up on another day, let us know so we can keep track of all our dedicated volunteers. Contact information is below.

The City of Edmonton wants to thank all of those volunteers who have cared so much about our river valley over the past 24 years. Hope to see you in 2012.

Small but dedicated group took to the downtown yesterday cleaning up and collecting about 10 large bags of litter and misc items. A bit cleaner than past years, but still a long way to go to get to where we want to be. Thanks to all who did their part over the weekend.
