Lynchburg Girl Scouts plan Wiseman Park clean-up

Posted on Thursday, April 19, 2012 at 4:11 pm

In celebration of Earth Day 2012, the Lynchburg Girl Scouts are organizing a cleanup workday in Wiseman Park on Sunday, April 22 from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m.

Groups will pick up trash, plant flowers, and clean up the waterways in the park. Participants are asked to bring your own water and come dressed to get dirty. Gloves, rakes, shovels, trash bags, and wheelbarrow might also come in handy.
There will also be conservation information and light snacks. If you can’t come and work, organizers ask that you stop by and drop off your empty plastic water bottles.

As part of the 100th year celebration, the Brownie scouts will collect 100 plastic water bottles to recycle – bottles that would have otherwise ended up in local landfills.
