Earth Day activities abound in Jefferson County for the annual day of support for environmental awareness.

Readings and discussions start at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 22. Register at surveymonkey.com/r/northwindreads to participate.

EARTH DAY AT FORT FLAGLER STATE PARK

There is no better way to celebrate Earth Day than helping to restore nature. Friends of Fort Flagler have organized a park clean-up and removal of invasive plant species.

Beginning at 9 a.m. Saturday, April 24, volunteers are being encouraged to sign up for a two-hour shift; bring your tools, drinking water, face masks, and gloves.

Pandemic guidelines will be followed to ensure the health and safety of all helpers.
