Good Friday Morning!
Looking for something to do this weekend? I've got something for you then.
DEQ hosts their monthly Cleanup Brigade on Saturday morning. This month they are at Wing Beach. The cleanup begins at 8 AM.
Earlier this week I said we'd be planting Flame Trees on Saturday morning. That was because I forgot we are going hiking.
So just to be clear, there will be no planting this week. Instead, the Parks & Trails committee will lead a reconnaissance hike up the Banadero Trail. We are working with the Boy Scouts to get this trail named as an historical trail. We are going to hike it tomorrow to see what kind of work needs to be done to improve it.
I will lead a hike from the Korean Memorial up to the top of Suicide Cliff and then back down. We'll be taking GPS positions of areas that are in need of stabilization, and so on, and anyone is welcome to tag along.
Just meet us up at the Korean Memorial at 8:45 AM. If I'm not there by 9:00 AM...just keep waiting. The hike takes about 30-45 minutes each way, depending on how fast you walk. You will not need a machete, but please bring hiking shoes and water. Zorries are a no-no.
If you are really motivated, you can cleanup Wing Beach with DEQ for an hour and then shoot up to the Korean Memorial to join us in our hike.
Saturday night Aqua Resort has an All You Can Eat Shrimp Fest. The shrimp are all locally raised and 10% of the proceeds goes to MINA to support Beautify CNMI activities. This is a great opportunity to support the local shrimp farming industry and our environmental coalition at the same time. Please call Yoshimi at 322-1234 for reservations.
Sunday morning is our monthly cleanup of the Garapan Tourist District. We meet at the American Memorial Park parking lot at 8 AM. This will be the 12th consecutive month of this cleanup. Is Garapan clean yet?
Our schedule can always be found online at: http://beautifycnmi.blogspot.com/2007/01/calendar-of-volunteer-events.html
I do my best to keep it up to date.
Have a great weekend,
