Thanks for making Haines cleaner
May 9, 2019
The Earth Day Ad Hoc Committee would like to thank the many who helped our community Earth Day events to succeed! The community cleanups, the “Plastic Pollution & Solutions” forum, the plastic bag ban ordinance now before the Haines Assembly, and the boosted fish net recycling program at Haines Friends of Recycling couldn’t have happened without many hands. Thanks to the organizers, student researchers and poster artists, displayers, and those who attended the forum. Thanks to all the individuals, businesses and organizations for support and to those who have left our town sparkling by picking up trash. Special thanks to visiting and local speakers who stimulated conversations; CVCF and the Haines Borough for grants that supported educational outreach; Haines School and the 6th grade class; Takshanuk Watershed Council; American Bald Eagle Foundation; Chamber of Commerce; Haines Friends of Recycling; and many more! And lastly, don’t forget the May 17-18 community cleanups still to take place!
