Earth Day Community Clean-up in Bayfield set for Saturday, April 20th

Friends Earth Day Clean-Up Day April 20th, 9:30 a.m. Meet at NPS Headquarters in Bayfield

April 11, 2024

As part of Earth Day 2024, please join us for a Community Clean-up event in Bayfield on Saturday, April 20th. This year’s Earth Day theme is Planet vs. Plastics, so we’re doing what we can to keep plastics and other trash out of Lake Superior.

Meet at the National Park Service Headquarters courtyard on Washington Avenue at 9:30 Saturday morning. Bring your own gloves. Bags and safety vests will be provided. We’ll also have some muffins and coffee for you. Our community clean-up will run until noon. If you have questions, email jill@friendsoftheapostleislands.org.

Earth Day will be observed two days after our clean-up, on April 22nd, 2024. Organizers say “EARTHDAY.ORG is unwavering in our commitment to end plastics for the sake of human and planetary health, demanding a 60% reduction in the production of ALL plastics by 2040.”
