Started 47 years ago, Green Up Day is a proud tradition in the state of Vermont. On the first Saturday in May, no matter the weather, community volunteers throughout the state head out to the rivers and roadsides to clean up discarded trash and litter.
This year, as usual, NorthWoods staff and junior staff participated in the statewide effort, picking up litter along ~1/2 mile of East Echo Lake Road. We filled just 2 trash bags, a decrease from past years. Thanks to the Echo Lake community for keeping the neighborhood clean and green, and to all who helped Green Up their own Vermont towns!
