Lowell Earth Day and Points of Light Canal Cleanup

Our first cleanup of 2020 will take place at Ecumenical Plaza the morning of the annual Points of Light Lantern Festival. Help us clean up this stretch of the Western Canal to make it a cleaner place for the thousands who attend the Points of Light Lantern Festival every year.

We provide cleanup tools and gloves. Our focus is on the removal of litter, discarded items of all sizes, and invasive species.

In addition to individual volunteers, we welcome help from neighborhood organizations, scout troops, faith-based groups, student groups, veterans groups, and environmental groups. Although you're welcome to show up on the day of an event without notice, we prefer if you can help us get a headcount prior to an event so we can plan better.

For individuals, the easiest way to do this is by responding to our Facebook event listings at

For groups, please send us an email with how many people you expect to join.
