Earth Day, the annual holiday celebrating environmental protection, is this Sunday. The first holiday was celebrated on April 22, 1970. If you want to mark the occasion by making the world a cleaner place, several volunteer opportunities are available from Friday through Sunday.
When a plastic bottle drops into a storm sewer west of Douglassville, it most likely will end up stuck in the same place as thousands of others - a large logjam near the Schuylkill River Bridge on the Thun Trail.
A splash of color can brighten the day.
Walkers, bikers and runners in Pottstown will be treated to a burst of colorful flowers this spring along the Schuylkill River Trail in Riverfront Park.
