Dunn’s Marsh people,
I apologize for sending still another e-mail, but Fitchburg Environmental Engineer Rick Eilertson just sent me a change of schedule for the waterway bike ride as well as additional information about several events. Brush hauling and clean up dates and times are the same as published before in the Dunn’s Marsh Neighborhood e-News. Here’s Rick’s e-mail about the events. The changed information is in red.
Unfortunately, I was not able to open any of the links. I hope this was just a temporary server problem, not a problem with the links. I’ve attached the map Rick had given me a few weeks ago for the May 1 waterway cleanup. The meeting place for “Group 1” is where the April 24 group will also meet.

Happy 1 Day After Earth Day 40!
Below is an updated short summary of numerous upcoming activities sponsored by Fitchburg related to a celebration of the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day. Please note that the *(Starred) Events have updated information from the last e-blast I sent. In particular, the April 24th Nine Springs Creek Watershed Biking Tour has been rescheduled for May 1st due to anticipated thunderstorms tomorrow afternoon.
Please add these items to your calendars (both hard copy and electronic) and pass them along to any others who would be interested.
