For the Reporter

Help Auburn celebrate Earth Day and participate in the city’s largest volunteer effort.

The community-wide volunteer effort on April 21 will focus on major cleanup, environmental restoration and beautification efforts in different areas throughout the city. Volunteer groups will work on general cleanup, landscaping, planting, weeding and other projects at various parks, trails and other sites.

Volunteers may register online at auburnwa.gov and can choose either to participate in a specific project or ask to be assigned to the project that is in need of the most volunteer support.

Everybody is welcome. Service clubs, social service agencies, faith-based groups, scouting troops, businesses, families and individuals are invited to come out for the day, work together on some beautification projects and celebrate Auburn.

Volunteers will be asked to bring tools based on their volunteer assignment (determined once registered), gardening or work gloves, and a broom for the ceremonial sweep along the Main Street sidewalks. Participants are encouraged to wear t-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, or other clothing that identifies their group.

The morning agenda for Saturday, April 21:

7:30 a.m. – Check in at City Hall and breakfast prepared by Kiwanis Club of Auburn

8:15 a.m. – Welcome and project Instructions

8:30 a.m. – Ceremonial sweep along Main Street sidewalks

8:45 a.m. – Teams go to project locations
