The nonprofit plans to gather at South Side locations on Saturday to clean up Chicago’s south coast, according to the group’s Facebook page. Those looking to get their hands dirty and connect with nature for the annual event are encouraged to attend at least one of four activities on Earth Day. 

  • 11 a.m.-noon: Avalon Park, 85th and East End. School and residential cleanup. Contact Lisa at lcdcyn@aol.com for more information.
  • 12:30-1:30 p.m.: Calumet Heights, 95th and Stoney Island. Community cleanup. Contact Dean at dean@deancantave.com for more information.
