Volunteers unite! The Syracuse Public Library will hold an orientation for those interested in helping us maintain a section of the 12-mile Syracuse-Wawasee Trail.
At 4:30 p.m. on Earth Day, Friday, April 22, make your way to Lakeside Park, 1013 N. Long Drive. Erlene Yentes, director of the Syracuse-Wawasee Trail, will show the cleanup tools used and demonstrate procedures to maintain the trail.
Meet other volunteers at Orientation Day and enjoy light refreshments. Becky Brower, adult services library with SPL, will also share information about the free wildflower seed giveaway, which arrives in May.
The Syracuse trail system is enjoyed by all ages, and several groups help maintain different sections of the trail. The Syracuse Public Library is happy to join their numbers.
Both SPL and Syracuse-Wawasee Trails are nonprofits that qualify for volunteer hours. Contact Brower in person, at email@example.com, or (574)457-3022 for more information or to be added to the mailing list.
If the weather is poor, this event will move to the Syracuse Public Library's meeting room.
