PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - South Dakota’s capital city is kicking off its sixth annual spring cleanup effort.

More than 100 volunteers will be planting trees, picking up trash and beautifying Pierre as part of this year’s Go Green and Clean campaign. The effort is set to begin Wednesday.

Mayor Laurie Gill says the projects include cleaning up road right-of-ways, painting park structures and “giving the statues along the Trail of Governors a bath.”

At least 27 organizations, including the city’s police department, railway employees, and retired teachers, will take part in the campaign.
