 Restore Moorhead LogoAnnually, on April 22, our global community mobilizes to protect our planet on Earth Day. It is estimated that over 1 billion people will take action this year and we want to be part of the movement. This year's theme is: Restore our Earth. Let's do our part and focus on restoring Moorhead. We have a goal to get every park, street, trail, and pond adopted at the beginning of the year for a one time city-wide clean up. Knowing this is hard to accomplish in one day, we will give you a whole week! Earth Week 2021 will take place from April 18-24. For a full list of adoptable areas, see the maps below. Volunteers will be entered to win a Prize Pack!  Thank you- and Let's Keep our City Clean!

Registration Form (click here): Please submit by April 5.


You Are Needed!

Citywide Beautification Opportunities- Parks, Trails, Streets, Ponds, and Flowerbeds
The City Beautification committee developed an ongoing comprehensive plan to help keep Moorhead  clean and beautiful by involving our community volunteers to adopt various areas throughout the city.

Volunteers can participate in the beautification program in one or two ways.  Adopt an area for the season or if time does not allow this, we always welcome one time groups to serve as groups either large or small, as families or as individuals. There are always clean up needs in the city, so we can customize your volunteer experience to what best fits your schedule.  If you are interested, please contact the Moorhead Parks and Recreation Volunteer Coordinator at 218.299.5296.

See the maps below for areas that need adopting, and please consider adopting your favorite park, stretch of the river trails, a downtown flowerbed, or one of our streets!

Thank you to all the volunteers that have helped with the beautification program!
