3-5 Great British Spring Clean
Last year 250,000 people took part in the Great British Spring Clean.   This year, volunteers will again do what they can to clear up litter.   This will help make the countryside look better and keep wildlife safer - many animals think litter is something to eat or get caught in it or trapped in it.   Find out more here
