There were plenty of Earth Day initiatives happening locally on Thursday.
At Heckrodt Preserve in Menasha, volunteers trimmed the shoots of poplar trees so they don’t take over the prairie land.
Brad Creighton with Volunteer Fox Cities said, ”When it comes down to Earth Day, any day, volunteering is so important to give back to the community, whether it’s something you can do yourself, whether you want to get together with one person or a team, whatever you feel safe doing. There’s always places and agencies and groups like Heckrodt or others looking for help every day of the week,”
In Neenah, Goodwill held a special donation drive to keep items out of landfills. Goodwill of Northcentral Wisconsin parked a truck at Miron Construction to receive donations.
