Duluth Mayor Don Ness Asks for Help to Clean Up Duluth

Duluth Parks-Facebook

Almost 1,000 hours of Clean and Green volunteerism have been contributed to our parks and green space, and the City of Duluth wants the public to know that there is still more to do.

Mayor Ness will be out cleaning with Girl Scout Brownie Troop 4153 on Wednesday, June 12th at Memorial Park at 1pm. He’ll be using the opportunity to remind the community that we can all pitch in to keep our parks and trails clean.

To date, community groups from around the City have provided over 750 volunteers and over 900 hours of volunteerism in parks for Clean and Green 2013. Among the generous have been Edison Charter Schools, who partnered with Duluth Parks and Recreation for Global Youth Service Day 2013; Holy Rosary School, who had their middle-schoolers collect garbage in Lester Park, Bayfront Park, and Brighton Beach; and neighborhood community groups in Riverside, Norton Park, and Woodland.

Other participating groups include:

Duluth East Baseball, Woodland Hills, Lake Superior Zoo, Safe & Walkable Hillside Coalition, Friends of the Lakewalk, area Girl Scout troops, UMD, Lake Superior College, Trillium Services, St. Michael’s Lakeside School, Duluth Public Library, Newman Catholic Campus Ministry – UMD, Junior League of Duluth, Stowe Elementary, Rockhill Community Church, the Duluth YMCA, Harbor Highlands Community Center, and the 4H Ambassadors.

Community groups, individuals, families and others are invited to register a Clean and Green event. The City will provide bags, gloves, safety guidelines, first aid kits, vests and other tools and equipment to registered groups. No project is too small or insignificant.

For more information, call Cheryl Skafte, Volunteer Coordinator for the City of Duluth at 218-730-4334 or
