If you live in an apartment in Garner, NC you can celebrate the 10th Annual New River Gorge Earth Day Celebration in downtown Fayetteville on April 25. The festival will be replete with beautification projects, live music, food and workshops for the entire family.

The celebration kicks off with a Stream Cleanup at 8:30 a.m. Those wishing to participate should meet at the corner of Gatewood and Cunard roads in Fayetteville. The cleanup will last until noon.
