Capital Region gives back to Mother Earth
April 22, 2019 05:00 PM
Earth Day is upon us and people across the Capital Region are trying to help in any way they can. That includes in Rensselaer County.
In Castleton, teams from National Grid were working to clean up a nature preserve that was overgrown with vines choking trees and too much garbage dumped on the trail.
In Rensselaer, packs of seeds are part of a pack for kids at the Boys & Girls Club.
In Troy, three new Japanese maples were planted outside the County Clerk's office.
To see video of people working on all of these projects – and learn about how Rensselaer County plans to continue this effort long after Earth Day, watch the video of John Craig's story.
Behind the Rensselaer County Courthouse they plant three new Japanese maples in the urban setting. @RenscoExecutive @SteveMcNY along with RC #Sheriff Pat Russo & #CountyClerk Frank Merola. The trees will grow 20’ tall & 20’ wide. @WNYT pic.twitter.com/8zQdTExtc0— John Craig (@JohnCraigWNYT) April 22, 2019
