Marblehead’s Conservancy is calling on residents to celebrate Earth Day/Arbor Day by participating in an annual community effort to preserve and protect the town’s open spaces. The event, co-sponsored by Gilbert & Cole, the Conservation Commission and the Recreation and Parks Department, will take place on Saturday, April 29 from 9 a.m. to noon in Lead Mills.
Participants are invited to join in the festivities by meeting at the Conservancy’s tent, located just off Lafayette Street near the Forest River bridge. Activities for the day include planting wildflowers and cleaning up the beach.
To ensure that everyone can participate, the Conservancy will provide seedlings, tools, water and trash bags. Participants are encouraged to wear gloves and sturdy shoes.
