While some may be relaxing on Saturday, Apr. 26, volunteers will be working to cleanup South Berwyn.

Check-in for the “2014 South Berwyn Earth Day Kickoff” will begin at Hermitage Middle School at 8:15 am. The event will take place from 9-12 pm.

“It’s a chance for volunteers to get together and beautify South Berwyn,” said Hillary Fulara, a recreational programmer for Proska Park.

Fulara said volunteers will focus on cleaning up designated areas and preparing the community gardens at certain schools.

“It’s part of our strategic plan to institute or install environmental literacy among our residents,” said Fulara of the event.

Following the event, Heritage Middle School will host a picnic.

“As a way to thank our volunteer we usually have a lunch around noon,” said Fulara.

The event is hosted by the Berwyn Park District, South Berwyn School District 100, Morton West High School, and the City of Berwyn.
