YLG Seattle Celebrates Earth Day with Spring (Street) Cleaning

In addition to litter removal, the team also stenciled storm drains, identifying inlets that release directly into Puget Sound during large water events. Together these volunteer efforts help to protect water quality and keep our city healthy.
