Carl Garner Federal Lands Cleanup Day

Calendar topics: Environmental Dates
What better way to kick off the new season than to clean up the city you live in?
Carl Garner Federal Lands Cleanup Day is a day observed in the United States to encourage nationwide citizen participation in the cleanup of federal lands. It occurs on the first Saturday after Labor Day, and may include a variety of programs, ceremonies, and activities. It was created in 1985 by the Federal Lands Cleanup Act as the "Federal Lands National Cleanup Day" and renamed in 1995 to honor Carl Garner and continue and expand his work of encouraging citizens to clean up Greers Ferry Lake and Little Red River in Arkansas. The holiday is now celebrated all over the United States.
If you donít volunteer to keep your city clean, who will?
National parks and wildlife refuges are places that often get left out when citizens complete city-wide cleanups. This is the perfect time to get involved and clean up those areas that are often forgotten! According to the National Park Foundation, there are 401 national parks from coast-to-coast, which puts every American less than 100 miles from a national park.
