Those who want to help the environment might want to participate in the Earth Day spring cleaning at the Orland Grassland from 9 a.m. to noon April 20.

Participants should meet at Old 175th Street and 104th Avenue on the west side of the site.

Those who are driving to the site should park across the street in the subdivision.

In 2012, volunteers discovered old farm relics and hauled them out of the Orland Grassland.

Some things they found included a farm auger, a steel milk crate, an old Plymouth hubcap, old bottles and a hot water heater.

There’s plenty more to haul out.

Tools and gloves along with snacks will be provided.

Information: orlandgrassland.org or Pat Hayes at (708) 220-9596.
