Petersburg Mayor Signs Earth Day Proclamation 

Earth Day was established in 1970, and is an annual, worldwide event to raise awareness about issues affecting our land, air, and water.  On April 2nd, Petersburg Mayor Rick Snyder signed a proclamation encouraging businesses, organizations, and individuals to participate in a city-wide litter clean-up on Earth Day, April 22, 2021, and throughout the year, to make Petersburg and Menard County Communities healthy and environmentally friendly.

To celebrate Earth Day, Menard County Trails and Greenways (MCTG), with the outstanding support of local businesses and organizations, will hold a litter clean-up around Petersburg on April 22.  We will pick up litter at several parks and spaces around town from 4-6 pm.
