Celebrate Earth Month by doing something beneficial for the EARTH!

Here are some ideas and contacts for neighborhood beautification and community clean-up projects.

 

TRAIL WORK on Badger Mountain 

The work involved varies. Some examples include smoothing out rocky sections of trail, regraveling sections worn thin, securing trail edges and helping to create new trails. Work projects can be arranged for large and small groups, or indivisuals can join in planned trail work parties. Contact: This email address is being protected from spambots.

West Richland Community Clean up: Volunteers Needed! 

 

Lead a neighborhood beautification or community clean-up project!  

Neighborhood Beautification

Find an eyesore in your neighborhood and make it beautiful. Neighborhood beautification projects can include yard clean-ups, planting trees or flowers, picking up trash, etc. Look for a project in your area ands ask the property owner for permission. Public property (parks, playgrounds), contact your city parks department or school administration. 

Community Clean-Up

Find a community area that needs a little help. Community clean-up projects can include parks, streets, and non-profit grounds clean-up. You can also adopt a stretch of highway. Contact the land owner or if it is public land, (open to the public) just clean it. Need more ideas or projects? Call 509-539-6453 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

Wye Park Cleanup (being rescheduled - TBD)

The WSU Tri-Cities Environmental Club is organizing the annual spring cleanup of Wye Park (near Bateman Island) and surrounding areas. All ages will be welcome, please bring water to drink and gloves to wear during the event. We can use help from volunteers on the water to reach trash on the shoreline - if you are interested in that, please bring your kayak, canoe, or SUP.  Thanks for your support of this student group and Tapteal Greenway!
