Earth Day was first celebrated April 22, 1970. This day has been set aside each year to recognize our Earth and promote greater environmental awareness through education, action, and celebration. To commemorate this day the Port Clinton Recreation Department and the OSS Solid Waste District will once again be sponsoring the Port Clinton City Beach and Park Cleanup. The cleanup will be held on Saturday, April 20, beginning at 9a.m. Volunteers are needed and are asked to report to the Lakeview Park Shelter House with gloves, rakes, and lots of energy.
