Cache In Trash Out - Volunteer Litter Cleanup


Give back, clean up, and find the “cached” prizes during this family fun eco-hunt. City of Des Moines Parks and Recreation, Iowa Geocacher’s Association, Westwood Neighborhood Association, and other concerned citizens invite you on our unique hunt for trash. Help improve our creeks and central Iowa’s water quality! Volunteers will be wading through the creek or walking along the trails collecting litter, tires, and looking for the GIANT plastic eggs, with a prize in each! Trash bags, grabbers, and gloves will be provided. Registration is required – please sign-up online here: Please note that the event will kick-off and wrap up at Pal Joey’s (6224 Grand Ave), but volunteers will sign up for different cleanup locations in the Walnut Creek area and may drive to their designated parking location after checking in with staff. Call 248-6399 or text DSMVOLUNTEERS to 84483 to sign-up for weather-related updates. Questions? Email
