The Park is Clean

23 Jan

Thanks to all who have helped clean up the park over the past week. Litter was everywhere, and especially along the new shoreline path. Inspired by an email from Whitney McFadden, I put out a call for help on MLK Day via two local listservs. Over the week, 10 volunteers helped pick up and this morning 6 scouts from our AMAZING & FAMOUS LOCAL Troop 56 (one of their own just became the FIRST female Eagle Scout in the USA) came to the rescue, with their parents and a few neighbors. We collected 11 big contractor bags of trash and 6 bags of leaves (clearing the pedestrian footbridge) and made many piles of sticks and branches. So grateful to you all!

If you see litter at the park, please pitch in and pick it up. Cambridge manages the eastern part of the park; their trash cans are at the boat launch and on the soccer field. DCR will return trash cans to the western part of the park later this spring.

If you seem problems at the park–e.g. cans needing to be emptied or big branches down–email and cc me at THANK YOU!

We also found 2 shopping carts and two bikes–one in the water. If they are yours, please claim them–they’re beside the Big Belly trashcan at the canoe/kayak launch.
