Spring has sprung and with that, it is time to think about the approaching fun of spring and summer! A common first step to prepare for summer for many people is to participate in the traditional spring cleaning. However, there are more ways to do some spring cleaning other than sorting through your closet and reorganizing the shoe rack!
We are fortunate to live in a beautiful area with ample opportunities for outdoor recreation. In order to keep the Eagle Valley beautiful it is necessary to take time to care of our favorite spaces. Community clean up days are a great way to engage in giving back to the valley and a different way to approach the tradition of spring cleaning. They also serve as an excellent family activity where you can teach children in your life about the importance of community service while spending the day outside! With many options to participate, there is sure to be one that fits your schedule.
Below you will find information about the awesome spring cleaning opportunities throughout the Eagle Valley!
