The Happy Valley-Goose Bay Green Team’s work is coming to an end for the 2010 summer season. The four-man team tackled mosquitoes, heat waves, dust and litter to clean up the trail that runs beside the Churchill River along Mud Lake Road. They cleared brush, picked up garbage and widened the trail. Crushed gravel has been spread along the trail and topsoil has been placed two feet on either side of the walking trail.

Apart from their work on the trail, the Green Team held four environmental awareness events. A partner thank-you was held on Thursday, august 16.
“The Green Team has had a very productive summer,” said Green Team leader Gillian Dyson. “The team members have all worked very hard.”
