Volunteers needed to Keep Baton Rouge Beautiful
BATON ROUGE - Hundreds of people are expected to take to the streets, and clean the city-parish Saturday morning.
Keep Baton Rouge Beautiful has partnered with the Mayor's Office to cover areas of all 12 districts.
All but one location will be meeting at 8:30 a.m. The downtown meeting place, at Laurel and North Third, will meet at 7:30 a.m., due to an event downtown.
