Cane River National Heritage Area To Host Community Cleanup on Earth Day

In honor of Earth Day and Keep Louisiana Beautiful: Love the Boot Week, Cane River National Heritage Area will hold a Community-Wide Cleanup. Individuals, families, organizations, and groups of all ages and sizes are invited to help out on Saturday, April 22 (Earth Day) from 10 am – 1 pm to create a cleaner, greener, more beautiful Cane River Community.

CRNHA will provide all the necessary supplies, including gloves and trash bags. Just come in comfortable clothes and shoes, bring a water bottle. Volunteers will meet at the Cane River National Heritage Area table at the Natchitoches Farmer’s Market (Natchitoches Riverbank) that morning to pick up supplies and be assigned a cleanup area.
