Massive Provo River Trail Cleanup Organized for 9/11 National Day of Service

Up to 3K Young Single Adults will gather to clean up and maintain sections of the trail from Vivian Park to Utah Lake

PROVO, UT, UNITED STATES, September 7, 2021 / — In recognition of the 9/11 National Day of Service, 16 Young Single Adult (YSA) stakes from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from across Utah County will participate in a project to clean up and beautify sections of the Provo River Trail extending from Utah Lake to Vivian Park (in Provo Canyon). This is part of a national event planned to commemorate those who came together to positively impact the country after the devastating attacks 20 years ago. The project is being organized with support from Utah County and Provo City agencies.

From a membership of approximately 35,000 18-32 year-old individuals across these stakes, organizers expect 2,000-3,000 volunteers to participate in improving/maintaining sections of the trail (see the attached map). Most will gather between 9:00 am and 11:00 am to participate in various projects, including trail clean up, removing overgrowth and trash, removing graffiti on bridges and other structures, and similar projects. Volunteers have been asked to bring tools (rakes, broom, clippers, etc.). Most section organizers are providing gloves, trash bags, breakfast, and water.

Media contacts are invited to join at any point of the project. If you are unavailable to attend, please contact us for various media assets that will be provided upon the project’s completion, including photos, video, and statements from participants.
