In celebration of Earth Day 2018 the Sustainable Duke, Sarah P. Duke Gardens, and Duke Partnership for Service is pleased to host Durham's first PLOGGING event! What is plogging you ask? Well it's simple, you pick up litter as you run, helping to restore the beauty of Durham!

The Earth Day Plog will be held at the Charlotte Brody Discovery Garden at Sarah P. Duke Gardens on Saturday, April 21, 2018 at beginning at 10:00am. Trash bag and gloves will be provided.

There is no set distance for this event, and participants are encouraged to walk, jog, run, or wheel. Meet at the Discovery Garden at 10 am on April 21st to get your free reusable bag, gloves, and free breakfast and refreshments to fuel your jog! The goal is to collect as much litter as possible on your jog and dispose of the waste back on campus in the proper receptacles to keep trash out of the landfill!
