Happy New Year

The Go Green Derry Committee would like to wish all of Derry a Happy New Year.

Our agenda for 2011 is indeed full of great ideas for getting our community outside enjoying nature, learning about the wildlife in our backyards and working together to keep Derry clean of litter.

We will once again offer the Summer Conservation Walk Series, and continue our support for the 2011 Stream Team program. New this year, we plan to host spring and fall town wide clean-up weeks and we are looking forward to starting a workshop series on Intentional Living and a pilot summer program for kids.

We will also be talking a lot about recycling this year. The Town of Derry makes money on Paper, Cardboard and Scrap Metal. We should all be helping Derry by recycling these items. Aluminum cans and Plastics labeled 1-7 will save the town money when separated from regular trash and placed with commingled recyclables.

Go Green Derry is a lively group with great ideas and interesting discussions and we welcome anyone in town that would like to participate, to join the committee. Please contact us if you are interested.
