    Sojourner Truth Neighborhood Center in New Orleans, LA

    Join us for a March Green-Up on the Greenway. We'll be making the Greenway clean, green, and beautiful, by picking up litter in preparation for our annual Hike.

    Make sure to wear closed-toed shoes and weather-appropriate clothing that you don't mind getting dirty, and bring a water bottle to stay hydrated. The more the merrier! Many hands make light work.
