Sheridan County will hold several events to celebrate Earth Day 2011.
This year will mark the 41st anniversary of Earth Day and three events are being planned to coincide with the day that is set aside to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth’s natural environment.
Sheridan County Emergency Management Coordinator Dave Coleman stands next to a delivery of 25,000 sandbags, which arrived Monday morning from the Wyoming Office of Homeland Security. Added to what the County already had, there are now 40,000 availalble to fill if springtime flooding occurs.
With springtime comes mountain runoff of rivers, creeks and streams. The folks at Sheridan County Emergency Management have been stockpiling sandbags in the storehouse in the event that waterways in this region go over their banks.
