SOLVE Cleanup at Nadaka on April 26th was a success for everyone. 37 volunteers came out to help remove invasives for this Earth Day cleanup with SOLVE. We logged 112 hours of volunteer time and filled a 40 cu yard dumpster. Some did take time out to enjoy Turtle Rock. A big thank you to Jazzy Bagel for the wonderful bagels.
