Fort Worth Cowtown Great American Cleanup
Keep Fort Worth Beautiful's 34th Annual Cowtown Great American Cleanup, our largest annual litter cleanup and beautification event of the year. Every year, organizations, businesses and individuals pick up litter from parks, streets, creeks and other public areas. In 2018, thousands of hard-working volunteers removed over 142,000 pounds of trash from their communities.
The Fort Worth Runners Club partners with the City of Fort Worth and the EPA on the annual Chasing Leaks 5K to encourage residents to fix leaks and stop wasting water. This year they are holding the race with the Cowtown Great American Cleanup and Earth Party to help promote environmental awareness. This year, race proceeds assist low-income families with their water bills.
Afterward, KFWB hosts the largest green event in Fort Worth! This is a free event with family-friendly entertainment and live music. There are also educational booths, animal adoptions and exhibits. Volunteers enjoy a free lunch and learn about topics like water conservation, air quality, waste reduction and recycling, environmental issues, healthy living initiatives and much more!
