This year, there are TWO Earth Day activities you can sign up for! On Saturday, April 20, help us mulch and install deer fencing around some newly planted young trees and shrubs along Ash Creek. Then on Monday, April 22, join the Lions Club as they pick up litter along the Willamette River in Independence!
