Green Deer

Green Deer encourages all residents of Red Deer to pick up litter and "leave it better than you found it!"

Participating in Green Deer is a great way to build social connections and give back to your community—not to mention both the physical and mental benefits of spending time outside!

The Green Deer Spring Cleanup Campaign is on from March 21 to May 31. During this time, residents pick up litter anywhere in Red Deer at their own pace.

The Red Deer River Cleanup is on Saturday, June 4. On this day, volunteers meet at the Kerry Wood Nature Centre then pick up litter along pre-determined routes near the river and waterways.

Both events are family-friendly and have prizes for volunteers!
