Baldwinsville plans for Earth Day 2012

— The Village of Baldwinsville is planning to hold a community Earth Day cleanup on Saturday, April 21, and seeks 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 and other areas of the village.

This cleanup signifies the eighth such effort of the Village’s 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 seven years both Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops, The Optimist Club, Baldwinsville Chamber of Commerce and 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., please contact the Village of Baldwinsville Department of Public Works at 635-9665.
