Volunteer to Team Up and Clean Up the Elizabeth River Trail
Celebrate Keep Norfolk Beautiful Day, May 4th, on the ERT
– Keep Norfolk Beautiful and the Elizabeth River Trail Foundation have teamed up to host a litter cleanup along the 10.5-mile riverfront trail, and they need your help!
Bike, walk, run or drive to the trail and lend a hand to tackle litter and help keep the city’s iconic trail beautiful. On Keep Norfolk Beautiful Day, Saturday, May 4th, 9 am – 12 pm volunteers of all ages will work together to pick up litter in 10 different locations along and near the trail. After the cleanup, volunteers are invited to spend the afternoon in the Chelsea Business District to celebrate. This event is part of the regional kickoff for the Great American Cleanup, the nation’s largest community improvement program.
