Oakland Earth Day: Come out and Volunteer on April 23, 2022!


On Saturday, April 23, Oakland Public Works (OPW) will be back outside with neighborhood clean-ups of streets, sidewalks, schools, parks, and along creeks and other waterways. Volunteers will pick up litter, remove graffiti, weed and plant, and restore native habitats.
