Star Spangled Clean-Up to Save the Oceans

July 5, 2020 - July 12, 2020 All day

After the fireworks are done, Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium, Keep Omaha Beautiful and Diventures ask for your help in keeping our oceans and water-ways free of debris. Starting Sunday, July 5th grab your friends, families, and neighbors and clean-up the paper and plastics from fireworks and festivities left behind.

Using the hashtag #StarSpangledCleanup, share photos/videos of yourselves in action with the Zoo on social media. We urge you to count the pieces of trash you pick up so we can track your impact on our environment! Trash data sheets are available at

Plastics and paper from fireworks find their way to rivers and streams and ultimately to the ocean so you make a difference this Independence Day.

Join us Sunday, July 5th thru Saturday, July 11th and collect trash and Save our Oceans!
