Celebrate Earth Day this year by spending some time caring for the environment. The Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau (PMVB) is seeking volunteers for its region-wide litter pick-up day on Saturday, April 23, 2022, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. rain or shine. The Pick Up the Poconos Spring Cleanup is just one component of the PMVB’s “Pick Up the Poconos” campaign.

Anyone interested in helping the cause can fill out a volunteer form located at PickUpthePoconos.com (HERE). The deadline to sign up is Monday, April 18, 2022, by 5 p.m.

There are more than 20 locations across Wayne, Pike, Monroe, and Carbon counties for volunteers to choose from. There are also various private cleanups happening in conjunction with this initiative. Volunteers will receive supply kits on the day of the cleanup consisting of trash bags, gloves, safety vests, and other supplies.

After the cleanup, volunteers are invited to the first-ever Earth Day Celebration at Pocono Organics for exclusive access to great door prizes plus free food, beverages, educational activities and more. Volunteers will receive more information on this event following their online registration.

Please help spread the word by sharing the event on Facebook (HERE).
