TOPEKA – Whether you’re looking for a way to gain some volunteer hours or simply just feel like “giving back,” consider volunteering for the 2018 “Keep It Clean Kansas” state park cleanup event on April 21. The Kansas Department of Health and Environment, in cooperation with the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism and Westar Energy, will host the special Earth Day event from 8 to 11 a.m. and volunteers of all ages are invited to participate.
Five Kansas state parks have been selected as cleanup sites this year: Webster State Park in Stockton, Wilson State Park in Sylvan Grove, Sand Hills State Park in Hutchinson, Eisenhower State Park in Osage City and Prairie Spirit Rail Trail in Garnett.
Volunteers at each park will be served breakfast and given a commemorative event T-shirt. To register as a volunteer, visit www.kdheks.gov/waste/earthday.html
