North Main District Clean Day- Friday, May 3
Join us on Friday May 3 for the North Main District Clean Day, brought to you by BID, Durango Chamber of Commerce and City of Durango.
Clean Day recruits volunteers to help clean up the North Main District by removing trash, sweeping up dirt and litter, peeling stickers of poles, and more. It's a great way to help shine up the district for summer, and a good volunteer project for families, individuals, organizations and co-workers.
