This year, several of our SGP river towns are celebrating Earth Week, April 17-25 with cleanups, plantings, and other activities! SGP is helping to spread the word on these efforts so that volunteers like you can join in on the fun and give back to our communities. We are so excited to help keep our river towns clean and beautiful! See below for the schedule of events and activities.
