Earth Day GreenUp 2018

It is a beautiful day for a cleanup! Join us as Earth Day 2018 marks the 8th annual community-wide stewardship project for The Woodlands Township. Please pre-register at the park of your choosing by March 12, 2018, to ensure equipment for your group. Connect with neighbors and the outdoors by joining or leading a cleanup crew bagging trash from the streets, pathways, and streams. You gather your friends, and we provide the bags! Annually, volunteers remove the equivalent of 4500 pounds or 76 of our 96-gallon trash carts!
Important Details
Individuals, families, clubs, scouts, neighborhoods, businesses, places of worship and schools are all invited to volunteer. Participants will receive a T-shirt and refreshments. Please pre-register here before March 12, 2018. Pre-registering will ensure equipment for your group.

Whether participating as an individual or group, everyone must sign a waiver. Please print, sign and bring the waiver to check-in.

Volunteers should be prepared for cleanup by wearing appropriate clothing – long pants and closed-toe shoes/boot are recommended. Remember hats, sunscreen, mosquito repellent and a reusable water bottle – we will have a refilling station at the celebration! Gloves and bags will be provided. A limited number of grabbers and vests will be available to groups that pre-register. A limited quantity will be available to walk-up participants at each check-in site.
