Earth Day clean up is sponsored by the Wallingford Community Council and City Fruit. We will be picking up trash, cutting tall weeds, digging weed roots and grass come rain or shine. Wear long pants and work shoes and bring work gloves. If you have tools please bring them but we will have extras to share.

Wallingford’s public waterways are wonderful features of our community and the Wallingford Community Council has made access to the public waterways a key action item. Keeping the areas along them clean helps to improve shoreline habitats and makes them more enjoyable for all of us, as well as it helps to keep garbage and trash from washing into Lake Union.
