Scouts will volunteer for Earth Day cleanup


Mill Creek MetroParks will host cleanup day Saturday at various locations. Coordinators will pick up supplies before 9 a.m. at the Ford Nature Education Center, 840 Old Furnace Road, Youngstown. The cleanup takes place rain or shine.

Volunteers are provided with trash and recycling bags, gloves, and grabbits, as well as pencils, certificates and car litter bags for each participant. There are more than 300 scouts that volunteer each year, but all help is appreciated.

The event is in conjunction with the Keep America Beautiful Great American Cleanup.
