We will attempt to reschedule this project again in the future.

The Nelsonville Green Team is still looking for volunteers who are18 years or older and willing and able to help and possibly make a commitment to volunteer once a month for various green up projects around Nelsonville. Volunteers will need to physically able to pull weeds and perform general clean up tasks.
