In honor of Earth Day, the DeKalb Park District is teaming up with the City of DeKalb, Kishwaukee Water Reclamation District, Northern Illinois University, and the Trash Squirrels for a community-wide clean-up.

Individuals, families, and service groups are asked to come together to clean up trash and debris in some of our most popular locations across the DeKalb community. From downtown DeKalb to NIU campus to select park locations, volunteers will have plenty of ways to give back this Earth Day 2022. 

Participants may be assigned to some of our popular parks such as Hopkins Park, located at 1403 Sycamore Road; Welsh Park, located at 651 Russell Road; Rotary Park, located at 1504 E. State Street; or Boardman/Pappas Park, located at Hillcrest Drive and Fotis Drive. Lunch will follow at the Hopkins Park Shelter.
