Green Up Day!

Join your friends and neighbors on May 5th for a community clean-up effort on Green Up Day!  South Hero Land Trust is organizing this annual event to clean up beaches, streets and trails that make South Hero special. There will be volunteer options for the whole family, and all volunteers are invited to the free BBQ afterwards! An hour or two of your time will make a huge difference in cleaning up our community in time for spring.

Street Cleanup

Independent street cleanup will take place all morning. Contact Guy at 372-3786 or to sign up for a street or street section. Green-Up Day bags and instructions will be available at the South Hero Land Trust Office.

Folsom Community Garden Clean Up

Join community garden volunteers at the school to get our school/community garden ready for spring planting! We'll be repairing beds, moving compost, planting peas, and more. Please wear gloves. If you have a shovel, bring it along. 9:30-11:00 AM.

White’s Beach Clean Up

This fun and rewarding activity is a great way to introduce young children to Green-Up Day. The whole family can help to remove trash and debris from White’s Beach, preparing the popular swimming spot for summer fun! Please wear sturdy shoes and bring gloves if you have them. We will provide gloves and bags. 10:00-11:00 AM.

Recreation Path Clean Up

Head to the South Hero Recreation Path though the Roy Marsh to do some spring trail maintenance- clearing the trail of winter debris and overgrown branches. Please wear good shoes, long pants, and work gloves. We will provide tools, but if you have a favorite pair of clippers or loppers, please bring them along! 9:30-11:00 AM.

Thank You BBQ

Join South Hero Land Trust from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM at the Folsom Education & Community Center Playground for our annual Green-Up Day Thank You BBQ. Celebrate a cleaner, greener South Hero with free burgers, veggie burgers, and hotdogs. The BBQ is held to thank dedicated volunteers for their hard work keeping South Hero beautiful and caring for the community landscape.
