Greenwich Land Trust celebrated Earth Day with a day of action on Saturday, April 22 at their Louise Mueller Preserve on Round Hill Road. Greenwich Land Trust works every day to protect our community by conserving and caring for open space, but Earth Day is a special day when the organization rallies the whole community for the cause. With the help of more than 70 volunteers of all ages, 800 wildflowers, 250 saplings, 9 grand evergreens, and 500 square feet of vegetable gardens were planted. Wildlife in Crisis, a Westport-based animal and land conservation organization, joined the celebration and released a red-tailed hawk to its new natural home. Lunch was provided by Whole Foods Market.
