Celebrate Earth Day!
Help Auburn celebrate Earth Day and participate in Auburn’s largest volunteer effort! Clean Sweep is just around the corner and you’re invited to volunteer for this fun, annual event.
This community-wide volunteer effort will focus on major clean-up, environmental restoration, and beautification efforts in different areas around the City. Volunteer groups will work on general clean-up, landscaping, planting, weeding and other projects at various parks, Auburn’s Environmental Park, trails and other sites around Auburn. Volunteers can register on-line and can either choose to participate in a specific project or can ask to be assigned to the project that is in need of the most volunteer support.
Everybody is welcome to join in the fun! We invite service clubs, social service agencies, faith-based groups, scouting troops, businesses, families, and individuals 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 is as follows:
7:30 a.m. – Check in at City Hall & free 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
We encourage you to register on-line via the City’s website or you may also download registration information and return the form by mail or fax.
