Now that summer is almost over, Mayor Dyer's Beautify Fresno initiative is excited to announce three new volunteer opportunities for next month, including a special worldwide cleanup event!First, on Saturday, September 10, we'll be working in the Edison High School area around California and Walnut. It's our very first time in this neighborhood!  REGISTER HERE!Then, for the second straight year, we will take part in World Cleanup Day,  Saturday, September 17, with cleanup events at three different locations!The goal of World Cleanup Day is to unite millions of volunteers and organizations in 191 countries to tackle the global waste problem and work together to clean up our communities. It's a cause that fits perfectly with Mayor Dyer's vision for "One Fresno" so let's join hands again - last year, Beautify Fresno had over 120 volunteers at two locations and removed over 1,300 pounds of litter and debris!This year, you can join us at Mariposa Plaza downtown, JSK Park in West Fresno and the Fresno Center on Kings Canyon in Southeast Fresno. REGISTER HERE!Finally, we'll wrap up the month with an event on Saturday, September 24 in the Leavenworth Elementary School area, just south of Highway 180 between Cedar and Maple. REGISTER HERE!And since the school year has started and the weather is starting to cool down - WE HOPE! - we're moving back the event times in September to start at 9:00 a.m. and finish at 11:00 a.m.  with the exception of the Mariposa Plaza event which will start at 8:00 a.m. and finish at 10:00 a.m. before the Fiestas Patrias parade downtown.Join us and help Beautify Fresno - we're looking forward to seeing you there
