Celebrate Earth Day in Stockbridge by picking up litter in your neighborhood between April 17 – 24. Even in these challenging times, we welcome your participation this year if it is good for YOU.
LHA trails and properties need attention as well. Clean up while you hike the Laura’s Tower or Ice Glen Trails. Accessible trails and properties include the Mary Flynn Trail and Roeder Park. If you need a suggestion, we are happy to help!
Being outdoors collecting accumulated litter can be a safe and positive activity IF you are not sick and take the recommended precautions. Your emotional comfort is important as well. We want to share the following common sense reminders from the Stockbridge Board of Health:
Stay 6’ apart from those not in your household (no carpooling!)
Wash your hands – pre and post pick-up
Wear gloves and don’t touch your face
Throw disposable gloves away or let your work gloves sit for 2 days after use
Wash your hands for 20 seconds after you remove and throw away or set aside your gloves.
And the usual – watch out for poison ivy, ticks and traffic
We can all feel good about how our individual and collective actions make a difference.
