Many residents of Fernie love the arrival of spring. Unfortunately with the melting snow is the appearance of the accumulated and buried trash. The entire student body of Fernie Secondary School dedicated some time to cleaning parts of the city on Monday.

The students hit every end of the city, from the school grounds and ball diamonds to Annex Park and along the highway to the arena as part of Earth Day awareness. Teck donated a complimentary lunch and Tim Hortons donated prizes.
