Batesville, IN — In celebration of Earth Day, the City of Batesville, Batesville Main Street, and Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce are inviting businesses, residents, organizations, and schools to work together to make Batesville a litter-free community.

Volunteers are needed to help beautify the city during the two-day community cleanup on Friday, April 21, and Saturday, April 22 from 8 am – 12 pm both days.

Sign-up is optional, and you are welcome to show up during the two-day event and help out in any way you can.

Interested volunteers can email one of the following three community partners:

On Friday, April 21 volunteers will meet at 8 am at Inspiration Park (across from Amack’s Well), and on Saturday, April 22 the meeting place will be at the Liberty Park Pavilion (716 S. Park Avenue) at 8 am.

Further instructions will be given to volunteers upon arrival.

Trash bags will be provided but you’re asked to bring gloves and garden tools.
