Columbia Cleans Day 2022 is Saturday, March 26!

We all have a responsibility for keeping our precious natural areas litter-free. CA is proud to support Columbia Cleans Day, a long-standing tradition that gives everyone the opportunity to help the environment in their own backyard.

With the help of grant money, CA provides trash grabbers, vests, maps and bags. CA also picks up all the litter after the event.

Each village organizes their own Columbia Cleans Day effort. Check below for more information on what’s happening in your village!
