SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Today is April 17, or what’s also being called 417 Day.
And to celebrate, 417 Magazine invited the public outside to help give back.
The magazine’s entire staff and some members of the public cleaned up the Galloway Trail earlier today.
The magazine’s president says they wanted to kick off this effort by giving back what she called “417 Land.”
“We feel like the trails are one of the best assets when you live in Southwest Missouri,” Logan Aguirre said. “It’s just a great way to get out and enjoy your families and the outdoors which is one of our best assets. So, as the magazine that celebrates why this is the best place to live, we wanted to clean up something that is important to us.”
This won’t be the only effort to clean up the community — Earth Day is coming up on Monday, April 22.
