Decorah Beautification Day
As part of a week’s worth of free activities planned in Decorah in conjunction with Earth Day, April 22, Green Iowa AmeriCorps and the Northeast Iowa Peace & Justice Center co-facilitated the first annual Decorah Beautification Day event Sunday, April 26. Beginning with a pep rally, including live music and guest speakers, on the Winneshiek County courthouse steps, a group of about 30 volunteers dispersed throughout Decorah to remove as much trash and litter from city streets as possible. Pictured above, from left: Mary Moore, 9 and Ramsey Zilka, 9, both of Decorah, helped collect litter and debris along Ice Cave Road. (Photo by Julie Berg-Raymond).
