Come to the Midtown Greenway Cleanup and Scavenger Hunt This Saturday

Midtown Greenway

Midtown Greenway

The Midtown Greenway Clean-up is just a few days away on May 4th! Saturday is looking to be a glorious, sun-filled day – we hope you can join us!

Here are some logistics:

  • Very important: Before you arrive, please review the guidelines from the Midtown Greenway Coalition, available here. 2019 Adopt-A-Greenway Cleanup Guidlines
  • Let’s meet at Greenway and 4th Ave S at 11:00am. We’ll get started on our way by 11:10 or 11:15, so if you’re arriving after that time, look for a group cleaning up nearby – it’s probably us.
  • Wear close-toed shoes and comfortable clothing.
  • We’ll provide supplies, but feel free to bring your own gloves.
  • After the clean-up, all are invited to Midtown Global Market for a casual meet-up beginning at 1:30pm. We’ll get a spot on the patio at Eastlake Craft Brewery if we’re lucky.
  • Finally, this is a weather-dependent event, so in the small chance of rain on Saturday morning, we’ll call off the event by posting here on and on the Facebook event by 10:00am.

For added fun, we will incorporate an optional Scavenger Hunt during the clean-up. We at are looking forward to seeing you this weekend!
