Ravens Go Green On Earth Day

(Media-Newswire.com) – The Baltimore Ravens are teaming with M&T Bank to tackle an Earth Day beautification project on the Gwynns Falls Trail on Thursday, April 22. Baltimore City Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake will be in attendance at 2 p.m. to join the service effort.

Coordinated by the Parks & People Foundation, close to 100 volunteers will collaborate in several service activities, including landscaping, trash removal and tree care, in an effort to revitalize Baltimore’s unique urban environment, cultural resource and historic landmark.

Local residents and visitors are able to bike, hike, rollerblade, fish, picnic, watch for birds and other wildlife, undertake environmental education activities, enjoy nature, host community festivals and meet friends and neighborhood residents along this coveted neighborhood Trail.
