Apple Valley neighborhood cleans up on Earth Day
As a way to celebrate Earth Day on Sunday, April 22, a group of neighborhood kids and their parents picked up trash at Wildwood Park on 137th Street in Apple Valley.
The kids are part of a neighborhood group called “The Wild Things of Wildwood,” which formally adopted Wildwood Park through the city’s Adopt-A-Park program.
“The kids have a blast running around the park picking up trash,” said a neighborhood parent. “For the kids it is more of an adventure than a chore and it teaches them to take care of the environment.”
