Thanks to all who participated – Scouts, families, and individuals – this year’s Earth Day recognition event at Lead Mills was quite a success with everything we set out to do finished beautifully and on time before anyone got soaked. .

The Numbers: We had over sixty individuals signed in plus the Scout groups. Participants collected 5 large bags of trash, 1 large container of recyclables, planted about 350 wildflowers, 9 red twig dogwoods, 4 elderberry shrubs and  laid out 2 truckloads of wood chips on the trails.

Our thanks also to the rain. It stayed away most of the morning then came along to help set all the plantings. All in all, it was a wonderful day! Visit the area and see how the changes toward a flowering meadow are coming along.
