Volunteer for the Earth Cleanup Challenge!

April 16

It’s Earth Month! Are you looking for a way to make a positive impact for your patch of the planet? Join in the region-wide Give Back to the Land Day Cleanup Challenge between April 1 and 16! 

To celebrate the 5th annual Give Back to the Land Day (Tuesday, April 16), the Volunteer for the Earth Cleanup Challenge is an easy-does-it and self-directed activity that you can do alone or with others, any time and anywhere you choose! Here are some general guidelines:

  • Choose your cleanup site: Pick a place that is safe, accessible, and could benefit from trash removal. For example, public locations you visit like town/city streets, trails, riverways, and parks.
  • Set a date and invite friends to join you: Once your location and fellow volunteers are set, register your cleanup event on the Give Back to the Land Day website.
  • Gather supplies and make trash disposal arrangements: Gather household supplies like disposable plastic gloves, nifty-nabbers, and bags or buckets for trash and recycling (keep them separate) for picking up, containing, and disposing trash.
  • Hold your cleanup event and document it: Get out there and collect trash, tally the number of bags or buckets you have, snap some photos, then return to the Give Back to the Land Day website to record your achievement. Social media sharing is encouraged!

Give Back to the Land Day is a 24-hour online fundraising event organized by four regional land trusts—Kestrel Land Trust, Franklin Land Trust, Hilltown Land Trust, Mount Grace Land Conservation Trust—and Connecticut River Conservancy. Each participating conservation organization is working towards the goal of creating a thriving local environment that supports the health of all who live, work, and play here.
