Green Up Day at Orvis


Written by: Eric Rickstad

The first Friday of May brought Vermont’s annual Green Up Day, and folks here at Orvis took the afternoon off to walk the roadsides and clean up the trash left behind over the winter. It’s amazing what we find each year; from a plastic swan and bed springs, to propane tanks, air conditioners, hundreds of bottles and cans, and a dead bobcat and fisher cat. It’s dirty work, but we love cleaning up our part of the state. Afterward, (and after some hand sanitizer) we have a barbecue and a few beers. It’s a great way to welcome in spring!
