On April 22, 2007, myself and the L.O.G.I.C (League On Global Issues and Concerns) Club, for which I am co-founder of, decided to clean the nearby park we adopted for Earth Day. The club is dedicated to the further prevention of global warming and addresses the climate crisis daily. We are advocates for a cleaner and greener planet and make every effort possible to make our community a more environmentally friendly place. For approximately four hours, we roamed the park, picking up trash, dandelions and all other forms of weeds, and an abundance of fallen branches. We also planted trees around the entrance to the park and flowery plants around the park's sign. We left the park a clean, environmentally friendly, and people friendly area. Since earth day of last year, we have had two more weekend cleanups and had the opportunity to institute plastic recycling at our school, as well as spread global warning awareness to the student body. Unfortunately, we were unable to clean the park on this years Earth Day due to the thunderstorms that persisted throughout the day and week, however, we plan to setup a cleanup within the next few weeks. Although we only adopted one park, we know that every little bit counts and together we can help stop the climate crisis; always keep it green!
