South Platte Renew Earth Day River Clean-Up

South Platte Renew (SPR) is hosting the annual River Clean-Up event between April 11 and April 23.

Building off the success of last year’s virtual event, this year will be a hybrid of DIY (do-it-yourself) efforts throughout the two weeks, leading up to the clean-up of Centennial Park on Saturday, April 23, from 9 a.m. – noon.

Virtual Clean-up | April 11-23: Volunteers can join SPR and the cities of Littleton and Englewood from their communities by collecting debris and trash from their neighborhoods, local rivers, lakes, or parks. Over the two-week period, volunteers can choose their preferred date, time, and location to keep local recreation areas clean, safe, and looking their best.

In-Person Clean-Up | April 23: All volunteers are welcome to join SPR in person at Centennial Park from 9 a.m. to noon! Volunteers will split into teams to collect debris and trash around the park.

This year’s goal is to collect 250 bags of trash and recycling throughout the event. SPR will share Clean-Up progress online, and participants that register will be entered to win prizes!
