2020-2021 Accomplishments

Due to COVID19, in 2020-2021 we worked with two small groups of volunteers and planted 1000s of bulbs in Downtown landscaping in lieu of our regular clean up projects. This should bring a lot of beautiful spring colors to Downtown! A total of 30 volunteers provided 90 hours of service. 

Special Projects Completed During Clean & Green

  • installed new landscaping and mulch in the 300 E. public parking landscape area (3rd Ave. and Kimbark St.)
  • applied new ground paint and table top chalk paint in St. Stephen's Plaza (5th Ave. and Main St.)
