This year, Make a Difference Day focused on efforts around the Willow Bend Environmental Education Center at Sawmill Park. Maggie Twomey of the City Sustainability Division organized groups and volunteers to restore the Willow Bend habitat gardens, weed and seed the Monarch Waystation, stabilize and seed the slope below the gardens, and remove trash along the Rio de Flag in Sinclair Wash. Participants included City and County staff, Americorps/American Conservation Experience, Natural Channel Design, Friends of Willow Bend Gardens, Willow Bend staff and Board members, Northern Arizona Trail Runners, Friends of the Rio de Flag, and many individual community members.
