Earth Day gathering, cleanup set for Saturday



In recognition of Earth Day, North Haven will celebrate the environment and efforts to protect it Saturday, April 9, 9 a.m. to noon, at North Haven High School. This annual, family-friendly gathering, sponsored by the North Haven Conservation Commission, draws many local groups, and includes giveaways.

Back in 2019, Conservation Commission chair Hugh Davis told The Citizen the goal of the event is to offer resources so “people can know better what's going on in town and in the area and hopefully become involved in some of these organizations.”

The North Haven Land Trust will hold a document-shredding on-site Saturday. The cost is $10 for a small box/bag filled with paper items.

Also, the Conservation Commission has identified town parks, fields, trails and public areas that need cleaning, and volunteers are sought for the effort. Those willing to help should meet at NHHS Saturday at 9 a.m. to pick up gloves and bags. As part of this town-wide clean-up, residents and local businesses are encouraged to spruce up their properties and neighborhoods. For more information, email suedannenhoffer@aol.com.

Earth Day is marked annually on April 22. First held in 1970, it now includes a wide range of events coordinated globally by EarthDay.org. The official theme for Earth Day 2022 is "Invest In Our Planet."
