Earth Day celebrations were held around the world on Monday and local organizations are scheduling special events in the upcoming days to effectively impact the environment. The Nature Conservancy and Forest Recovery Project along with the Climate Change Coalition of Door County are planning a one-day public tree planting on May 4 in Ellison Bay. Katie Krouse of the steering committee says the two weeks of tree plantings will also involve students from area schools.
The public tree planting will be held from 10 am until 3 pm on Saturday, May 4 on Badger Road in Ellison Bay. Volunteers are encouraged to just show up to help and wear work gloves while bringing a five-gallon bucket and shovel if possible.
