The Keep Fort Worth Beautiful foundation is hosting the 34th annual Cowtown Great American Cleanup, coming up on March 30th! Each year, thousands of volunteers – including organizations, businesses, and individuals – come together to pick up litter from local parks, streets, creeks, and other public areas. In 2018, these hard-working volunteers removed over 140,000 pounds of trash from their communities!
 
 
You can select from a list of cleanup locations or choose your own (within the City of Fort Worth) and then register as an individual or as a group. All registrants will receive gloves and bags. T-shirts are limited to the first 7,000 registrants.
