Earth Day GreenUp, Saturday, March 25, 2017
Earth Day 2017 marks the 7th annual community-wide stewardship project for The Woodlands Township. Each year Village Associations are awarded funds to contribute to their philanthropic programs based on participation. In 2016 Grogan's Mill had 57 residents participate. As a goal we are hoping that just 1% of our Village or 149 people sign up and participate this year.
You can connect with neighbors and the outdoors by joining or leading a cleanup crew bagging trash from the streets, pathways and streams. You gather your friends, and we provide the bags! Annually, volunteers remove the equivalent of 4500 pounds or 76 of our 96-gallon trash carts!
