Registration for spring 2021 Clean Green Springfield activities is now closed, but there are still ways you can continue to help cleanup and greenup Springfield!
Many Springfield roadways still need some TLC! Through the City’s Adopt-A-Street program, individuals, community groups, business owners, schools, churches and service clubs are invited to conduct one-time cleanups OR agree to a longer-term service commitment that offers a fun volunteer experience and city-wide recognition. Volunteers who adopt a minimum of 0.5 miles of arterial or collector streets and conduct litter pick-up at least 3 times a year will receive recognition on 2 Adopt-A-Street signs posted on each end of the adopted street segment! The City will provide trash bags to collect debris and will pick up bags when filled.
Adopt-a-Stream connects citizens directly to area streams. Adopters remove trash, enjoy the stream environment and celebrate the improvements in water quality, parks and trails over time. Individuals or groups not looking for an on-going commitment can also schedule a one-time stream or drainage area cleanup event.
Is your business, classroom, church or civic organization interested in learning more about litter, water quality and ways you can help our Ozarks environment? Let our educators share some tips and ideas about how YOU can help and why combined efforts matter. Call 417-864-2003 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
