Go Green And Clean Kicks Off In Pierre
Friday, April 21, 2017
Pierre’s citywide spring clean-up started Thursday.
Students from the Pierre Indian Learning Center and representatives from the railroad picked up trash along the railroad tracks throughout town yesterday.
Today, representatives from several state government agencies and students from Georgia Morse Middle School will join forces to clear litter and debris from the gulch, as well as Fourth Street and East Airport Road. Their efforts are all part of Pierre’s annual Go Green and Clean campaign.
Pierre Parks and Recreation Director Tom Farnsworth says that this year’s program is stronger than ever. Farnsworth also encourages Pierre residents to clean up their own yards as well.
The campaign is a civic pride effort designed to get the city shined up for the summer season. Each year for the last seven, dozens of volunteers and volunteer groups have painted public facilities, cleaned up flower beds, cleared litter and otherwise helped make Pierre look its best.
This year’s Go Green and Clean campaign also includes an Arbor Day tree planting seminar, a tree trimming seminar this weekend and an educational program about recycling. For more information about Go Green and Clean, visit cityofpierre.org or contact Tom Farnsworth at 605.773.7407.
