Nov 7 cleanup 3modTwenty people came out to enjoy the beautiful fall weather and to walk the woods, the playground & memorial and the borders of the sports fields looking for trash and recyclables. Nov 7 cleanup1




Our group picked up lots of plastic bottles, quite a few aluminum soda and cans, some glass bottles and even an empty can of peaches(!), almost filling two large barrels. A few of the cans had pull tops, meaning they have been in the woods for quite a while.
