Make a Difference Day @ Pittman Wash
Last Saturday, Project GREEN members, Henderson neighbors, UNLV volunteers, and more came over to help keep Pittman Wash beautiful. The volunteers repaired signs, restored walking trails, removed trash, and brushed off dirt under the bridge. After a rough year of vandalism, flooding, and plenty of wear & tear, the Legacy Learning Trail (which is right around the corner from my home!) got some much needed TLC.
Believe it or not, Project GREEN does more than just lobby the City of Henderson to stop proposed parking lots and concrete channels in the wash (though this is always important and badly needed!). Project GREEN also pitches helping hands to help with the day to day maintenance of the wash, especially in the trails going into the wash. And for all of us who live along Pittman Wash, we can't ever be grateful enough for the work they do.
