Green and Clean

  • Held each spring, the City's Green and Clean day of service encourages volunteerism and a sense of commitment to helping our community. Last year nearly 300 people participated in projects at Nadaka Nature Park.

    Join us for the fourth annual Green and Clean day of service on Saturday April 29 at Highland Elementary School.
