WARDSBORO GREEN UP DAY
Green Up Vermont’s mission is to promote the stewardship of our state’s natural landscape and waterways, and the livability of our communities by involving people in Green Up Day while raising public awareness about the health, economic, and visual benefits of a litter-free environment year-round.
Sunday May 7 8 am
A Note from Emma Sklar - Green Up Day Coordinator
Wardsboro community! Green-Up Day is just around the corner. Green up day is a day to come together to clean up our community and show the earth appreciation. Green Up Day is Sunday, May 7th. We will be at the town office handing out bags and road assignments from 8 am to 12 pm. There will be snacks and beverages to get your day started.
This year there will be a volunteer appreciation gathering at the library from noon until 2 - more details on this to follow. Please look us up on our Facebook page (Wardsboro,VT Green-Up Day) and our Instagram account @wardsborovtgreenupday. We will post updates and more information on those platforms. We look forward to seeing you all on the 7th.
This year we’re asking for your help to inventory the ash tree population. We are already out greening up town, so why not help to protect town against the infestation of the Emerald Ash Borer while we are at it?
Maps will be provided at the town office along with road assignments. Please see the article by our tree wardens Mark Fernandes and Ken Brace for more information.
This collaboration will help to create a safer Wardsboro for our entire community. Although we do hope that folks will participate, the ash tree inventory is not mandatory and our primary focus on the day is to green up. In addition to this we invite all volunteers to an appreciation gathering at the library from noon until 2 pm.

We look forward to seeing you all on the 7th.
