Earth Day is recognized every year on April 22 to celebrate the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement. It also serves as a reminder to us all to take care of our planet. The City will be taking part in celebrating Earth Day by hosting our annual clean up effort.
There will be many activities for all ages and abilities from big lift to sedentary tasks. Throughout the event, our community will be creating and maintaining new life by planting trees and shrubs, putting down mulch in wooded areas, mixing and spreading seed to create wildflowers and creating homes for birds. We will also be improving areas by picking up trash and debris, cleaning up the dock, raking phragmites to create nests for critters and remove invasive plant species that harm the environment and kill native plants.
In addition, there will be activities for participants after the cleanup including a cookout, boat and canoe rides as well as demonstrations from the Everett High School and Wentworth Crew teams on the Malden River for all who participated to say thank you for helping us in this tremendous community clean-up effort.
