Earth Day is coming up!
Saturday, April 23, from 10AM - 2 PM
Earth Day will be celebrated on Saturday, April 23 in our
Chicago Parks. Once again, the Friends of the Parks
organization is coordinating volunteer projects and activities
at many parks and forest preserves. The theme is Be Seen
Being Green and if you arrive early enough, you might get a
t-shirt that says just that!
We, will offer the popular Plant a
Flower, Take a Flower Home program. While supplies last, children and adults can help get
the garden growing at the north end of the park. Tools, gloves
and flowers are available. Adults can
help with shrub pruning to aid visibility into the park.
Boulevard Bikes will perform free bike tune-ups for all youth
bikes. The event is sponsored by the Unity Park Advisory
Council and led by Betsy Elsaesser.
