Pick Up Pennsylvania

Take the Next Step – “Pick Up Pennsylvania — Every Day”

Pick up a piece of litter every day while walking down the street, hiking along a stream or in the woods, fishing, boating, playing in the park, or anywhere else…if we all pick up one piece of litter every day, Pennsylvania will be clean and beautiful!

So you cleaned up the park, stream, forest, neighborhood… Are you interested in what else you can do?
