Earth Day Clean & Green
Updated: May 5
Over 125 volunteers commemorated Earth Day in Media by picking up litter, clearing debris, planting trees, and removing invasive plants. Keep Media Green volunteers, from ages 5 to 75, came out to clean and green borough lots, parks, streams, and streets, while overflow volunteers were assigned to help in county parks outside of Media as an expression of Keep Media Green’s appreciation for Delaware County’s care and investment in the 33-acre Glen Providence Park, the local park most used by Media residents. Keep Media Green thanks all of the children, parents, seniors, and students who pitched in yesterday to clean and green our town and parks. In addition to street clean-up routes throughout the Borough, sites included:
Glen Providence Park -- special thanks to Friends of Glen Providence Park President, Stephanie Gaboriault and Board member, Marcia Tate for coordinating multiple volunteer teams, and to Keep Media Green supporter, Brooke Forry, for recruiting Media Elementary School families
