These have included a cleanup at Big Walnut Creek at the DePauw Nature Park on Wednesday. An interfaith service also took place in the Nature Park's Amphitheater."

The article also notes several events, including one at which bottled water and tap water will face off in a head-to-head competition, the screening of a student documentary and a morning  get-together where "60 white pine trees will be planted with Greencastle Middle School students. "The Greencastle Parks and Recreation Department in conjunction with the DePauw Environmental Club are also sponsoring events for the community."
