Keep America Beautiful Activates First-Ever National Day of Action to Support the 2012 Great American Cleanup

#GreenStartsHereEarlier this spring, Keep America Beautiful announced a record-setting goal to recruit 4 million volunteers to participate in our annual Great American Cleanup, the nation's largest community improvement program.

The Great American Cleanup, like spring, offers us a wonderful opportunity to refresh our communities – by cleaning up, to be sure – but also by planting, rebuilding and renewing. This strength in numbers will be on full display during our first-ever Great American Cleanup National Day of Action on Saturday, April 28. We’re thrilled to have lined up 10 spotlight events in cities across the country.

Take a look at the following brief descriptions of the spotlight events:

This is the time of year to roll up your sleeves. See you outside!
