You can make a difference, and have a lot of fun doing it! Volunteers of all ages are invited to help Keep Burleson Beautiful by removing litter and debris from retail corridors, waterways, drainage channels, streets, parks, and other public areas. Volunteers will pickup materials (gloves, trash bags, and t-shirts) at Warren Park between 8 - 9 a.m. before heading out to selected or assigned cleanup locations. After picking up trash, volunteers are invited back to Warren Park at 11:15 for pizza and a prize raffles. Youth participants are enthusiastically welcomed but must have adult supervision. Come out, enjoy the camaraderie, and leave knowing you have made a difference! Use #BTXTrashBash to post your photos to social media. Please register by September 6th to give us time to pack the bags. Register here.
