NCWF Neighborhood Cleanup Challenge
April 4 - April 15
It’s time for some spring cleaning! But instead of wiping window sills and dusting ceiling fans, NCWF invites you to join us in making a commitment to get outside and take part in a Neighborhood Cleanup Challenge, April 4-15, to remove litter from the environment and prevent harm to wildlife. You can help wildlife and enhance habitat by cleaning up around your neighborhood, taking a bucket or bag along on your greenway/beach walk or even tidying up a local parking lot!
As part of North Carolina Wildlife Federation’s habitat restoration work, our Community Wildlife Chapters from across the state will host cleanup events to collect debris from neighborhoods and communities. NCWF will plant one native tree for every 25 pounds of trash removed from communities. “The Neighborhood Cleanup challenge is part of a larger effort to impact and improve the habitats for all of the wildlife species and habitat in the state,” said Tara Moore, director of conservation partnerships. “It’s a way for people to take action and raise awareness about litter in the environment and its impacts on wildlife, water quality and neighborhood aesthetics.”
