The village of Baldwinsville is planning to hold a community Earth Day cleanup on Saturday April 25 and is looking for interested groups or individuals to participate. This cleanup will take place along designated banks and shore areas of the Seneca River located in Mercer Park, Community Park, Canal Park, Meadow Street and the Sergei Yevich Trail.
This cleanup signifies the sixth such effort of the Village's Phase II Stormwater Management Program, which took effect on March 10, 2003. This program requires the village to reduce the contaminants and solids that are entering these waters. This cleanup is one of the many management tools the village will use to achieve the cleanup goals.
In the past five years, both Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops, The Optimist Club, individuals and families have participated in this effort. This is an excellent opportunity for Baker High School seniors to fulfill a portion of their Participation in Government volunteer hours.
If you or your group is interested in volunteering to lend a helping hand for this three-hour Earth Day event, which runs from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m., contact village of Baldwinsville Highway Foreman Mace Markham at 635-9665.
