This weekend join one of the most innovative new Marin eco-institutions for their Grand Celebration of Re-Use & Creativity - The Away Station at Fairfax Lumber & Hardware - taking place tomorrow from noon to 4:00 PM. They are a great new resource to help us move toward zero waste. When you're thinking about throwing something away that could be used again, think about the Away Station.

Fairfax Volunteers Peri Park Clean Up
Saturday, May 14, 9 a.m.-12 noon
Peri Park is a haven for parents year-round with its many trees, fun play equipment and nearby creek. It serves as an informal gathering spot for those in the community. Our beloved park needs on-going maintenance. Please come and help clean the playground, spread new sand, and maintain benches. Sponsored by Park & Rec and Fairfax FOCAS. For more info, contact Maria Baird at 456-5652.
Fairfax Trails Projects
Sunday, May 15, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.
As your kids grow, they may be less inclined to use the park, but more likely to be walking and biking around town, exploring the area. The Fairfax Volunteers have established a trail clearing program for pedestrian pathways. Help pave the way for shortcuts and more walkability through the neighborhoods. Meet at the Fairfax Youth Center, 16 Park Road for a brief orientation. We will then head out to a nearby trail that needs maintenance and get to work. Please wear closed toe shoes. Gloves, tools and snacks will be provided. Earn community service hours! Sponsored by the Fairfax Volunteers. Visit our website at www.fairfaxvolunteers.org for a listing of trail locations. Call Maria Baird at 456-5652 for info.
