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

Now is the time to go all in and invest in our parks, preserves, and planet!  Join the Chicago Park District and Friends of the Parks on April 23, 2022, for a citywide parks and preserves clean up. Community groups, Park Advisory Councils, families, residents, and all Chicagoans are encouraged to come out to their local parks to clean up and do their part in celebrating Earth Day.
