Those who care about the Centennial Trail can spend next Saturday morning caring for the trail, sweeping, weeding and picking up a winter’s worth of litter.
The Friends of the Centennial Trail is organizing a 37-mile spring cleanup, dubbed “Unveil the Trail, from 9 a.m. to noon on April 12.
Businesses and organizations expecting to take part include Hewlett-Packard, Kaiser Aluminum-Trentwood Works, CXT Inc., Olivetti North America; Telect Inc., Valley Hospital and Medical Center, Valley Kiwanis Club and Valley Rotary Club.
Each of those groups has adopted a mile of trail as its own. A few miles of the trail through the Valley have not been adopted.
Friends of the Trail asks that volunteers call its office at 624-7188 for more information about Saturday’s cleanup, including what miles of the trail most need help.
