Community Earth Day Celebration
5 April 2019
We were in the studio today with Matt Wendling with the Warren County Planning Department & President of the Front Royal/Warren County Anti-Litter Council and Kara Lewallen, a teacher at Skyline High School.
We talked about the Community Earth Day Celebration happening on Saturday, April 27, 2019 from 9am – 2pm at Skyline High School. Kara gave us a rundown of all the activities happening that day and the organizations who are participating in the event. You can download the event flyer here: CEDC Flyer. Kara also told us about a Skyline High School action project, “Buy One Give One” bag and book. You can purchase the bag/book at the Community Earth Day event or at Samuels Public Library. For each one purchased, one set will be donated to a local kindergartner. For more information, contact Kara via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Matt gave us an overview of their “Make a Difference in your Community” program that loans supplies to school clubs & civic organizations for roadside litter clean-up efforts. We also talked about the cargo nets (in three sizes for large and small pick-up trucks and utility trailers) available to town and county residents at no cost. The nets can be picked up at the Warren County Planning Department in Suite 400 in the Warren County Government Center during office hours between 9am – 5pm. Finally, Matt gave us the details about a competitive state grant they were awarded to fund a project to build & install Monofilament Fishing Line Collection Tubes at boat landings in Clarke, Frederick, Shenandoah and Warren Counties. There are still collection tubes available, you can get ore information about the project by clicking here.
