Saturday's Day of Caring in Price brought out 148 volunteers to clean up streets and transform the appearance of landscapes around public buildings and residences. The event was organized by the United Way of Eastern Utah. A few of the projects included cleaning up the trails and environs on Wood Hill, relandscaping Active Re-Entry and removing litter from the streets of Carbon Avenue and Main Street. On Wood Hill, three different crews representing hikers, mountain bikers and ATVers collected four big trailers full of trash - including a beat-up recliner that had been dumped there, gallon cans of solvent, shotgun shells, car doors, lots of shotgun shells and beer bottles and cans. At Active Re-entry, 30 people - including the whole USU Eastern basketball team - showed up to to xeriscape the grounds with native plants and trees. They also replaced the decorative tree bark on the grounds with gravel. Flowers from the plots around the building were not destroyed. They were harvested for use the residences being landscaped.
