April 26: Clean up parks for Earth Day

This Saturday, April 26 from 8am to 12pm, you can be a part of the state’s first state park cleanup. Called “Keep It Clean Kansas,” it’s being organized by the Kansas Department of Wildlife Parks and Tourism and the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.

Five parks across the state are on this year’s cleanup list –keepitclean

  1. Cheney State Park, Cheney
  2. Clinton State Park, Lawrence
  3. Crawford State Park, Farlington
  4. Scott State Park, Scott City
  5. Tuttle Creek State Park, Manhattan

And the parks to be cleaned up for the event will rotate each year, so if your closest state park isn’t on this year’s list, it may be on next years.

If you’re interested in volunteering, register here. Volunteers get lunch and a t-shirt. It’s a great opportunity to get out and help play a part in the protection of the valuable natural resources in the state.
