Throughout the month of April, the Valley Community Library, Pennsylvania Sierra Club, and Keep NEPA Beautiful have partnered with various community organizations in our area to do litter clean-up events. These clean-ups are a great opportunity to learn more about local organizations and what they do and learn about the impacts litter has in our community. Each event will focus on picking up litter along our streets and in our parks and we’ll dive into conversations about where the litter has come from, why it’s an issue, and what we might be able to do to make a change. You’ll be able to see the litter pile on the Valley Community Library’s litter tracking display.
We are proud to announce the following community partnerships who will be helping at various clean-ups throughout the month:
NEPA Pan African Coalition, Citizen’s for a Healthy Jessup, Carbondale Public Library, Lackawanna Heritage Valley Association, Queer NEPA Youth Council, and the Archbald Neighborhood Association.
Registration is required for each of these events. Please be sure to register online at www.sierraclub.org/pennsylvania/upcoming-outings. This ensures that we have vests, gloves, and an accurate head count for how many people will be at each location. These events are open to all, however many of them are on uneven surfaces and some do have age requirements for participants. Please read the descriptions of each event at the link above. Email Fawn at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
