The Imago Earth Center
will host an event called “Helping Hands Saturday” on Saturday
(duh), during which volunteers will break into groups and work

various clean water issues.
Volunteers will be
taught about local water issues and how to monitor water quality. The
event begins at 9 a.m. “rain, light rain or shine," and the
internet says it’s going to be a really nice day — with the
temperature nearing 50 and some sun poking over a little cloud.
gloves and equipment will be provided, with volunteers working in
groups from around 9:30-noon.
The event will involve the Sierra Club Ohio Chapter as part of Imago’s ongoing
efforts to provide educational experiences, create opportunities for
discussion and community building and conserve natural areas. The
Imago Earth Center is located at 700 Enright Ave. in Price Hill.
