North Dakotans Rolling Up their Sleeves for Earth Day

April 20, 2007

This Sunday is Earth Day, and it's taken on greater significance with the rising concerns about global warming. The Dacotah chapter of the Sierra Club has several projects planned for this weekend. For example, spokesman Wayde Schafer says volunteers are needed for a clean-up of the trails at Fort Lincoln State Park near Mandan.

“The Sierra Club is going to be out there on Saturday reworking some trails, filling in some ruts, and plotting out a new trail.”

Individuals, groups and families are welcome and everyone will need a shovel, a rake and gloves and dress for the weather.

Schafer notes that one of the most environmentally friendly things you can do on Earth Day is plant a tree, and you can do it at home or volunteer to help with a tree planting project along the Red River in which 2,000 new trees will be planted.

“Sometimes its fun to get together with your friends and neighbors and get out and restore a natural area. We are going to be working along the Red River and planting trees to help regenerate the natural forest there.”

The Fort Lincoln Park trail clean-up is Saturday beginning at 10 a.m. The Red River tree planting is Saturday starting at 11 a.m.
