GREEN BAY (NBC 26) — Monday is Earth Day, and community members across northeast Wisconsin are doing their part to keep their neighborhoods clean.

In Green Bay, On Broadway is recognizing the day with a clean-up event, and shifts are available from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday if you'd like to sign up.
