Volunteer for Indiana Dunes Trash Trekkers Earth Day Cleanup

Registration for the annual Indiana Dunes Trash Trekkers Earth Day Cleanup is now open. This year’s cleanup is sponsored by the Friends of Indiana Dunes, Indiana Dunes Tourism, and the Volunteer Office of Indiana Dunes National Park.

Family, friends, neighbors, and park employees will join forces to collect a winter’s worth of trash and debris from roadsides, beaches, the Little Calumet River, and the trails of Indiana Dunes Country to help beautify the parks and make the region a cleaner place to live. “Participating in the cleanup is a great way to take pride in your community, celebrate the spring, and enjoy your neighborhood, National Park,” said Volunteer Program Manager Jim Whitenack.

Crews will collect and bag roadside trash to be picked up later by Indiana Dunes National Park maintenance crews. To be assigned to a cleanup location, register with the park’s volunteer office before Sunday, April 18th.
