The annual Earth Day Trash Bash begins this weekend, and volunteers are getting ready to celebrate Mother Earth across the metro April 15-22. If you’d like to pitch in, you can register to pick up litter, plant flower beds or remove invasive species.

The first event is a Gray’s Lake watershed cleanup from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday, organized with support from Confluence Brewing. Register online and use the password “confluence” to receive a free drink and a Confluence Brewing tote bag after the dirty work is done. Other volunteer events begin at 1 p.m. throughout next week, culminating with a party on April 21.
