Record Turnout For 2023 Earth Day Cleanup
April 23, 2023
Even on a chilly, overcast day with temps in the 30s, dozens of volunteers turned out to tidy up our North Loop streets and parks for Earth Day 2023.
Thanks to businesses like Basecamp Fitness urging employees and clients to join the North Loop Neighborhood Association’s efforts, we had our biggest crowd ever–more than 30 people–turn out at Corner Coffee to help pick up litter.
Earlier in the morning, DRG had more than two dozen others gathering to do the same.
And at James Rice Park, another record turnout–more than 35 volunteers–cleaned the playground as well as the gravel trail by the river.
Many thanks to all those who showed up to make their community even better!
