Green the Grasse - Earth Day 2017

Nature Up North and friends at a "Green Up" on the Grasse River today in honor of Earth Day. We collected a total of 5 bags of trash and 3 of recyclables along the trail to the Sandbanks and along the river! It was great to spend the morning outside meeting new people, and it felt good to clean up an outdoor spot where so many enjoy spending time. We also encountered a full deer skeleton along the way, which nature was in the process of "recycling". Thanks to everyone who came out to help!
