In recognition of Earth Day, the Abington Area Joint Recreation Board invites volunteers to a cleanup at Hillside Park in South Abington Twp.
Groups that use the park will participate in beautification projects and a general cleanup April 17, and all park visitors are welcome to join. Some tools and bags will be available, but volunteers are encouraged to bring more, along with wheelbarrows, shovels and rakes.
Officials will be on hand to sign off on community service hours for students.
