Dear Prince Georgians:  

Spring is fast approaching and the County is celebrating “Preserve and Beautify our Environment” week April 22 through April 27, 2024. As part of the celebration, we will have activities during Earth Month and we are delighted to invite you to participate in our Spring 2024 “Growing Green with Pride Day” community cleanup event on April 27, 2024.  

Please join me on Saturday, April 27, 2024 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. for a countywide effort to safely clean our communities. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and out of an abundance of caution, we will utilize the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) best practices by implementing a grab-n-go style pickup. However, communities are invited to help us keep Prince George’s County clean and beautiful by placing mulch, picking up roadside litter, and removing illegally dumped materials. In order to keep our communities clean and aesthetically appealing, we must all work together and do our part. 

If your community or organization would like to join our efforts by participating in the Spring 2024 “Growing Green with Pride Day” community cleanup event, I encourage you to please complete the registration form online. When completing the application, please provide all of the pertinent information requested, including the name and mailing address of your community or organization’s primary contact, the expected number of volunteers, and the area and street name(s) of where your community will be cleaning. The registration deadline for signing up is Friday, April 19, 2024.

Thank you for your continued support as we work together to make the Spring 2024 “Growing Green with Pride Day” a huge success for Prince George’s County. Together, we will ensure that Prince George’s County remains the Crown Jewel of Maryland.
