If you didn’t get to take full advantage of Earth Day on Wednesday, you still have a chance! This weekend, there will be an Earth Day Cleanup and a Clean Water Cleanup taking place in your area! Both events are free of charge and are a great way to help promote a more environmentally friendly community!
