Thank You Earth Day Volunteers!

April 24, 2013

Our 5th annual Earth Day event at the Schiermeier Wetlands was a success! In just two hours, 125 volunteers cleared nearly 2 acres of honeysuckle, planted 325 trees and shrubs and picked up a half-dumpster of trash.  

It was wonderful to see OSU students, faculty, staff and community volunteers work together to make a difference!  Our partners this year included Sierra Club, Franklin Soil and Water Conservation District and Central Ohio Rain Garden Initiative.
