Mayor Daley joins volunteers at Earth Day events

April 25, 2009 (CHICAGO) Mayor Daley joined dozens of volunteers at one of many "Spring Clean and Green" locations, one of which was held at 47th Street and Forrestville. However, more than 10,000 volunteers spread out across the city to help spruce things up.

Later, the mayor helped plant 100 new trees on a vacant lot at 25th Street and Lowe, which is near the intersection of the Dan Ryan and Stevenson expressways.

Organizers noted the new trees will help improve air quality in the high traffic area.
