Central Avenue – Gaithersburg Green Up Day/Potomac River Watershed Cleanup 2020
April 18, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Spring cleaning takes on new meaning during this year’s community-wide Green Up Day.
Join hundreds of volunteers as they make a difference throughout the community by cleaning up and beautifying local streams, schools, parks, and homeowner association common areas during Community Green Up Day. The City is looking for volunteers for this event. Students can also earn student service learning credits.
Please wear clothing and footwear that are weather appropriate and that can get dirty, muddy, or wet. Although the City supplies equipment, volunteers are welcome to bring their own gardening materials and gloves for landscape and planting projects.
For those interested in earning Student Service Learning (SSL) hours, please sign in when you arrive, and bring all paperwork with you.
