The North Dakota Game and Fish Department is once again celebrating Earth' Day by sponsoring cleanup days on public-owned or managed lands.

With Earth Day recognized April 22, each member of a school, Girl Scout, Boy Scout, 4-H club or youth organization who participates in cleaning up public lands through May will receive a specifically designed conservation patch.

Last winter the Game and Fish Department sponsored a contest for students ages 6-18 to design a North Dakota Earth Day Patch. Winners receiving a pair of 8x42 binoculars in the three age categories were Dakota Skaro of Bismarck (6-9), Alexis Golberg of Bismarck (10-13), and Ayana Kovash of Manning (14-18). Kovash's design was chosen the contest winner, and will be used on this year's

Earth Day patch.

Groups participating in the Earth Day project are encouraged to take the following precautions to ensure safety: keep young people away from highways, lakes and rivers; and only allow older participants to pick up broken glass.

Interested participants are asked to contact Pat Lothspeich at 328-6332 to receive a reporting form for their project.
