Thank you to Alex Portal and the Post Star for their coverage of our Earth day Celebration.
About 75 people gathered in South Glens Falls Saturday to help clean up around the village to commemorate Earth Day.
“We’ve got a few teams from community businesses and organizations in the area,” said Cheryl Lawyer, director of marketing and outreach for the Moreau Community Center, which hosted the event.
One of those organizations was Boy Scout Troop Pack 99, which came out in force to help clean up around the river.
While those volunteers worked to do their part for the environment for today, Sustainable PR, a green-focused public relations firm, hosted the annual Earth Day event at City Park in Glens Falls, which focuses on long-term sustainability practices.
This year’s event featured several booths from eco-friendly organizations, as well as some special showcases including the Glens Falls vertical farm, “leave no trace” training, the grand opening of the seed library at Crandall Public Library, and an electronic vehicle show from Garvey Hyundai.
