23rd Annual Blacks Run Clean Up Day and Arbor Day - Many Small Groups Event

Get a group together, or your family, or just yourself, and join us on April 10, 2021, for the Annual Blacks Run Clean Up Day and Arbor Day Tree Planting event.  Each clean-up site will be limited to a maximum of 25 people due to COVID-19 guidelines (and don't forget your masks). But, we have lots of sites that are in need of some TLC! 

Register for either Blacks Run Clean Up Day or the Arbor Day Tree Planting.

Space is limited due to the availability of supplies, so register early!  As a bonus, volunteers will receive a seedling of a native tree to plant on their own, while supplies last.


Can't make it on April 10th?  Blacks Run always needs its TLC. Get a small group together (less than 25 per COVID-19 guidance from the Governor) and schedule a day to volunteer to clean up a section of Blacks Run.
