Earth Day Events, April 21

17 Apr

Though I know some of you celebrate Earth Day every day, the nationally recognized time to do it is in April. So instead of our regularly scheduled 4th Saturday workday, April’s stewardship opportunity will be on Saturday April 21, 9am-12pm. There are actually two events going on in Rainbow Beach Park during this time.

1. TREE PLANTING
Openlands is donating and planting 10 Black Oaks in the Dunes Nature area (just south of the Field House) and need your help! If you haven’t walked through the Dunes area lately, now’s the time. Meet at the entrance to the Nature Area at 9am. If you have questions about this project or to RSVP, get in touch with Glenda Daniel (gdaniel@openlands.org).

2. TRASH CLEANUP
We will have our annual Friends of the Parks beach cleanup at both Rainbow Beach and Rocky Ledge (79th & the Lake. This is our proposed site for a dog beach). RSVP to marion.brown@gmail.com.

For both events, you can RSVP or just show up! Equipment will be provided, but please dress appropriately for the weather and bring water to drink.
