2nd Saturday Highland Cleanups

Saturday April 8, 2017

8AM – 11AM

Great American Cleanup Day! Join us at Highland Park. Parking available on Olive Street.  Groups will receive directions and instructions on which blocks to clean that day.   Trash bags and grabbers will be provided. Bottled water will also be provided. Bring your gloves!

Call for Volunteers! Join Highland Restoration Association, Fairfield Historic District, Highland Jazz & Blues Festival, and the City of Shreveport: Community Development as we work together to beautify our lovely neighborhood of Highland.

Every 2nd Saturday we will meet at 8am to work for a couple of hours. Each month we will focus on a different “zone” of Highland.

Take PRIDE in your neighborhood, LOVE your city, and BLOOM where you’re planted.

We appreciate the efforts of all the organizations including Shreveport Green. They helped spearhead Shreveport’s anti-litter campaign, Don’t Be Trashy, Keep It Classy! This multi-faceted approach to litter awareness focuses on the individual’s responsibility. This is our way of supporting their year-long efforts to beautify our city!

Additionally, the Meadows Museum of Art has received a copy of The Triumphal Arch of Maximiliian I by Northern Renaissance artist and engraver Albrecht Durer.

The Museum augments its permanent collections with temporary exhibitions designed to reflect the diversity and interests of the regional community by presenting the highest level of aesthetic achievements of individuals and cultures.

The Great American Cleanup 2012

Shreveport Green is sponsoring the Great American Cleanup (GAC) on Saturday, April 14 from 8am-12pm. From 8am-10:30am everyone is asked to help clean up around their neighborhood.  Then from 10:30am – 12:00pm volunteers are invited to to visit the GAC headquarters at the La. State Fairgrounds to enjoy free food, giveaways, environmental information, and cash prizes (for groups collecting the most trash and groups with most volunteers present). All trash and recycling collected will be dropped off at the La. State Fairgrounds from 8:30am-11am. HRA will not be holding an organized cleanup this year and instead asks everyone to pick up trash around their part of Highland. For more information about GAC, contact Casaundra Calloway at [email protected]
