The City of Auburn Parks, Arts & Recreation Department would like to give a huge and sincere thank you to the volunteers who donated their time and support during Auburn’s 2024 Clean Sweep in celebration of Earth Day. We are extremely grateful for your hard work and energy to help beautify and clean up our parks.

Over 470 individuals from community groups, service clubs, businesses, faith-based organizations, scout troops, schools, social service agencies, families and individual citizens volunteered to help beautify Auburn.

This year, our amazing volunteers worked on 17 projects across 13 separate sites. With the help of Auburn Parks Maintenance, volunteers spread hundreds of yards of beautify bark, woodchips, and mulch around Auburn parks. Volunteers led by the Auburn Garden Club, planted hundreds of flowers around town. Volunteers down Main Street spruced up the flower pots, groups around town picked up litter, completed beautification projects, and hundreds of yards of invasive plants were removed from parks.

We love our community and are grateful for your willingness to volunteer. We are in awe of your community spirit, pride and dedication to Auburn.

We strive to make these community volunteer events valuable to participants and beneficial to the community. Thank you again for your work to beautify Auburn.
