Carl Garner Federal Lands Cleanup Day Activities

grasslands

The first Saturday after Labor Day is Carl Garner Federal Lands Cleanup Day! Created in 1985, this holiday is part of the Federal Lands Cleanup Act. The day also honors Carl Garner, an American engineer who organized a citizen community cleanup effort in the Greers Ferry Lake area. Take a tip from Garner’s work and get cleaning on this September national day!

What can you do?

  1. Put together a school-wide cleanup. The gum wrappers littering your third grader’s school grounds aren’t going anywhere by themselves. Organize a school-wide Saturday cleanup to celebrate this special day.
  2. Take a trash trip to a park. Whether you visit your local park or take a trek to a national park, you and your family can pitch in and take out the trash. Grab some gloves and bags and help keep those natural areas clean. Get a group in on the action and organize a church outing or school ‘field trip’ to perk up the park.
  3. Make a pact. Cleaning up isn’t enough. After the initial trash is thrown away, what happens next? Make a pact to keep the community (or country) clean! Have your kids write up their own declaration, promising to not litter, keep the area clean and help out on future Carl Garner Federal Lands Cleanup Days!
