Ravens Go Green for Earth Day 2010

The Baltimore Ravens are teaming with M&T Bank to tackle an Earth Day beautification project on the Gwynns Falls Trail on Thursday, April 22.

Coordinated by the Parks & People Foundation, almost 100 volunteers will collaborate in several service activities, including landscaping, trash removal and tree care, in an effort to revitalize Baltimore’s unique urban environment. In addition, a number of volunteers will take canoes to remove litter in a lake alongside the trail.

The Ravens’ Earth Day 2010 service project that shows the teams continuing efforts to go green. Recently the organization has implemented a gameday recycling program at M&T Bank Stadium and they have also began energy conservation practices, both at the stadium and the team’s Owings Mills training facility.

Also in attendance will be some Ravens players and staff, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and M&T Bank will be supplying 50 volunteers. The volunteers will be arriving at 1:00 p.m. and they will be placed along the trail around 1:30. The Mayor will make it out to the trail at 2:00 p.m..

The Gwynns Falls Trail is a continuous recreation area that connects over 30 neighborhoods in West and Southwest Baltimore and residents are able to do a lot of outdoor activities along the trail. With the summer months coming up, this cleanup will come just in time for residents that want to go ride their bike, fish, hike or just to spend a nice day by the lake in a healthy environment.
