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. 

They still need your help too. You can sign up at KBRB.org, or just show up at your desired location. Officials ask that all volunteers wear red, in honor of Baton Rouge's 200th birthday.

 

Here is a list of all meeting spots:

District 1: Brown Heights Subdivision @ Faith Baptist Church

District 2: Fletcher Williams Road, between Progress Road and Central Road

District 3: The Gardere Community @ Gardere School on GSRI

District 4: Central Thruway and Goodwood Boulevard (between Sherwood Forest Boulevard and Flannery Road)
