Earth Day GD.tif

POLK/BURNETT COUNTY—Celebrating the 51st anniversary of Earth Day and the 25th year of the Gandy Dancer State Trail, there will be an opportunity to kick off the summer hiking and biking season by helping with some maintenance.

Seasonal trash seems to collect nearest to the Villages along the trail, so this will be a good chance to spend a little time helping our area look good for the summer trail season, as well as celebrating Clear Lake, WI’s own Gaylord Nelson, who started Earth Day, 51 years ago, and left us his legacy, the importance of preserving our environment.

Trash bags will be provided at the various meet-up spots, and the idea will be to go a mile or so each side of the Villages.

2019 State Trail Passes, required for bike riders 16 and older, on State Trails will be available at a couple of the locations.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Gandy Dancer Trail.
