Obliterating litter in YOUR Cincinnati Parks!

It's time to say goodbye to litter!

Cincinnati Parks Foundation is proud to host litter clean-ups in Cincinnati Parks and surrounding greenspaces across the city. Grab a trash bag and some gloves and join us as we get HANDS ON to get LITTER OUT of the parks.

Litter is a problem, but there are solutions.

We are joining forces with the City of Cincinnati, Cincinnati Parks, Keep Cincinnati Beautiful, and volunteers to take action against litter. You can join us at one of our litter cleanups across the city. 

Volunteer dates are below, locations will be added the month of each clean-up.
