Today is off to a rainy start, but with the ground so dry, and the leaf litter unchecked by green growth, we really needed it!
Besides, now all of the buds and flowers will pop, the grasses will re-emerge, and the moss will turn deep green.
EARTH DAY CLEANUPS
We need wheel barrows!
If you can spare or share a wheel barrow for a day, please know that they are absolutely CRITICAL to being able to extract the craziness from up on Casacdes East!
We will be out at Cascades East from 9-12 on Olean Street and heading in and dragging out all manner of interesting stuff!
Your help would be great too!
Afterwards there will be a BBQ at the Lodge just down the street!
