This Earth Day, join us and clean up your neighborhood or a park! Pick up some FREE flower seeds from one of our locations.

This Earth Day, clean up Mel McKay Park or your own neighborhood! Bring your work gloves on April 22nd from 1:00 am to 3:00 pm for this community service opportunity to help clean up Mel McKay Park in Rock Island. Bring a friend or group to help pick-up garbage and sticks. Please contact Nikki at (309) 732-7280 if you are bringing a group or have any other questions. If you can’t join us in the park, then walk around your neighborhood and pick up one grocery bag worth of garbage! Take a picture and post it in our Facebook Event for a chance to win a family visit to Whitewater Junction this summer.


Pick up FREE seeds from Rock Island Parks and Recreation to celebrate Earth Day! Pick up a pack of Zinnias or Sunflowers to plant at home! (Approximately 10 seeds per bag). Pick up locations include: Mel McKay Park Clean up Event (1:00-3:00 pm), or all day at Rock Island Fitness and Activity Center, Saukie Golf Course, or Highland Springs Golf Course, while supplies last.
