High School In-Person Event: Earth Day Service Project. On April 22 from 6:30-7:30 PM, meet near the grass circle and wear clothes that can get dirty. The group will be painting inspirational rocks to create a Wake Forest community wide scavenger hunt. Youth will paint designs and messages and create clues as we walk down the greenway to hide them. Under each rock a clue to the next one will be hidden. This will ultimately lead to a hidden container that each person who completes this scavenger hunt will sign. Along the way, youth will be cleaning up trash and debris found along the greenway and take part in a special Earth Day themed Bible lesson. There is no cost to the event but youth are encouraged to bring rocks palm size or bigger to paint. Sign-up by April 21
