Glendale, Ariz. — The cities of Glendale and Peoria will team up again this year for the annual Party for the Planet event on Saturday, April 21, 7-10 a.m. at New River Trail.
Your city needs you to join the global effort to improve communities while making the world cleaner and more sustainable! Around 200 volunteers are needed to help clean up trash, brush and debris in the river bed and along the pathways.

All materials for the project will be provided, in addition to water and light snacks. Volunteers should wear tennis shoes or closed-toed shoes and dress in layers, bring gloves and wear sunscreen.
