Celebrate Earth Day In Davenport By Helping Cleanup, Plant At Fejervary Park
Earth Day this year is on Friday, April 22nd. To celebrate Earth Day in Davenport, the City of Davenport and the Davenport Parks and Recreation Department are looking for volunteers to help clean up and plant plants in a favorite Davenport park. The cleanup and planting will take place the day after Earth Day 2022.
The Davenport Parks and Recreation Department took to social media on Thursday to announce that they are giving residents of Davenport an opportunity to give back with Earth Day Extravaganza. You can join the staff of the Davenport Parks and Recreation Department at Fejervary Park's Learning Center to do some cleaning up and planting around the Learning Center.
The cleanup and planting at Fejervary Learning Center (1800 W 12th Street) will take place on Saturday, April 23, from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m.
Davenport Parks and Recreation officials tell those who are wanting to help to dress appropriately. Volunteers should wear long sleeves, long pants, and close-toed shoes. Gloves and tools will be provided at the Fejervary Learning Center.
Davenport officials say that all ages are welcome but children must have adult supervision. No action is required prior to the cleanup at Fejervary Learning Center as there is no pre-registration.
As reported earlier this week, that same day, the City of Davenport and the Riverfront Improvement Commission are hosting their 2nd annual Riverfront Refresh event. That will take place on Saturday, April 23rd, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. and volunteers will meet at the Freight House before things begin for check-in and assignment distribution.
This beautification and spring cleanup event for Davenport's riverfront does require a pre-registration. You can find more details about Davenport's Riverfront Refresh here.
