Senator Vogel encourages residents to “Pick it up” during Earth Month

April is Earth Month and this year’s theme is “Pick it up PA.” Senator Elder Vogel is encouraging residents to do their part by taking time to pick up litter around their homes and in public areas. Earth Day is an annual observance, held on April 22, to remind residents to take care of Pennsylvania’s air, land and water.

Many cleanup events will be taking place across the state throughout the month. The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) encourages residents find a cleanup event in their area by checking out the Great American Cleanup of Pennsylvania’s website at

Another online events resource is DEP’s interactive Earth Month calendar. Residents can use it to identify local Earth Month activities or to post their own events. For more information about Earth Month, or to check out the virtual calendar, visit and click on the Earth Month banner.
