Join the Norristown Project for our annual Spring Cleanup and beautification project. Our Earth Day cleanup will be on Saturday, April 22nd from 1:00 – 5:00 pm. A rain date is scheduled for April 29th. This event is part of the Great American Cleanup and Keep PA Beautiful.
We will return to Riverfront Park for a beautification and litter cleanup project. To prepare for the Summer traffic in the park, we will clean the river banks, green areas and work our way towards Crawford Park. There is a bunch of underbrush that needs to be cleared and trash from illegal dumping to be removed. By cleaning up the litter, we are preventing these items from going into the Schuylkill River and causing more damage to the environment.
In addition to this year’s cleanup, we will partner with several organizations to host a festival after the cleanup for families to enjoy. We will have vendors from the following organizations:
- Kosmo’s Restaurant
- Dragon Boat Club
- Norristown Riverfront Community
- Alfredo’s Restaurant
- Rotary Cub of Norristown
- Habitat For Humanity
- The Energy Co-op
- Norristown Preservation Society
- Audubon Society
Meet at the front of Riverfront Park, look for a silver van.
