Thank you for reminding everyone of this important event.
The Durham Earth Day web site has done an outstanding job with the site, easy to navigate to the clean-up sites as well as sponsors and organizations tabling. Well Done.
Janet Hitti, Rep for Parkwood to the INC
and also for the Northeast Creek Stream Watch Group which does have a clean up area on Sat. Morning.
