Volunteers are needed for a cleanup and seed planting event along the Fayetteville trail system on Earth Day this year.

The “Wild About Earth Day” event runs from 12:30 to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, April 22, beginning at the Marion Orton Recycling Center at 735 W. North Street. Bicycle parking will be available at the recycling center. Other vehicles may be parked behind the laundromat across the street.

Volunteers will spend the afternoon cleaning up litter along the Fayetteville portion of the Razorback Greenway trail system. After the area is cleaned, city staff will plant wildflowers along certain sections of the trail. All participants will receive a bag of wildflower seed to take home.

Supplies, including trash bags and pinchers, will be provided by the city’s Recycling and Trash Division. Supplies can be picked up at either the Parks and Recreation office located at 1455 S. Happy Hollow Road, or at the recycling center on the day of the event.
