2023 Cleanup Locations

Communities across the Susquehanna Greenway are celebrating Earth Month, April 2024, 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!
