All-Aboard! Gas Prices, Alternatives, And Complete Street Policies Are All Increasing (WC)

Tomorrow is the great compost giveaway in downtown Traverse City! Bring a shovel and elbow pads, it gets rough. Also, around 8am near the compost, Traverse City Parks and Recreation will be hosting a beach clean-up. Come help and we can talk about the Bayfront Plan. Then, at noon is the Earthday parade-line up at noon at Central Grade School. TART Trails also has a series of workbees.
