Group of Earth Day Volunteers


Celebrate Earth Day by helping clean and beautify a Chicago Park!

The Chicago Park District is partnering with Friends of the Parks to host a few Earth Day clean-up events in parks throughout the city this year. See details on these events below.  Thank you for making a difference in our city and our world.  Happy Earth Day!

Sign up for a socially distant clean-up at one of the parks listed below.  All work will take place within strict COVID-19 guidelines, which include mask-wearing, maintaining social distance,  washing or sanitizing hands frequently, and a 100-person limit. For this reason, some sites are scheduling volunteers in shifts. Please note that mulching will not be a part of this year’s options, and there will NOT be a culminating fair at Humboldt Park as has been done in the past.​

Garfield Park is having two clean-up shifts on the 24th: one shift from 10am-12pm, and the second is 12pm-2pm.
