It’s time for some spring cleaning on Ladd Marsh. Yes, it seems as though spring may actually be here and the Bird Festival is not far behind. Come on out and help clean up the marsh for all our festival visitors, human and avian. Saturday, May 5 at 9:00 a.m. Meet at Ladd Marsh HQ (59116 Pierce Rd). We will provide trash bags, nitrile gloves, some leather gloves and a limited number of picker-upper thingys. Participants will receive a permit to be on the area for the day after finishing the clean up. Come on out and pick up trash and you can have a smile like these folks from a few years ago.
Participants should dress appropriately for the weather, recognizing the potential for wet ground and strong wind. Please leave pets at home or make other arrangements.
