Local residents clean up downtown for Earth Day

Members of the community took time Sunday to go outside for some spring cleaning. As a way to celebrate earth day, volunteers met at Downtown Mainstreet in La Crosse to clean up the downtown area.

Dozens of people joined together in teams with garbage bags and brooms to clean the sidewalks and streets. The cleaning lasted 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Organizers are hoping to continue this event and make it a tradition for every Earth Day.
