The Norristown Project Earth Day clean up

  • Riverfront Park 1 Haws Ave Norristown, PA, 19401 United States (map)

Join Schuylkill River Towns in support of the Norristown Project's Earth Day clean up series. From the Norristown Project's Event Page

This Earth Day, TNP will host two community cleanups on the Riverfront! Both projects will begin at Riverfront Park on Haws Avenue and continue in the surrounding neighborhood (time permitting). Wednesday's project (Earth Day) will begin at 5:00 PM and continue until 7:00 PM. Saturday's project will be held from 12:30 PM until 3:00 PM. We encourage you to attend one of the two projects. This project is perfect for all ages!

Volunteers will be asked to clean Riverfront Park and trash that has washed on the shore over the Winter. We will also clean up debris and weeds around the park. When we complete the work around Riverfront Park, volunteers will then head to the surrounding area and clean up trash and debris off the sidewalks. 

The work requested at this volunteer opportunity is small, but will have a large impact when it comes to protecting the environment and preparing Norristown for the Summer. When the weather is warm, families travel to Riverfront Park to go boating, jet skiing and fishing. Having a community that is clean and presentable goes a long way to improving the overall living experience in Norristown. Dragon Boat Club has done an amazing job keeping Riverfront Park clean and now it's our turn to lend a hand!

If you are interested in bringing flowers to plant in the park, email sashe@montcooic.org and we will make arrangements!
