When many do a little, much can be gained.
Our grass roots efforts continue to grow. In the last month we have done awareness and maintenance events in the San Diego, Salt Lake City, and Denver metropolitan areas. We are working to schedule more activities in those areas and grow our presence in 7 others across the west and in New York City. Consider joining us in developing a nationwide network of trail stewards to keep the more than 50,000 public trails across our country as pristine as nature intended.Highlighted Activities
- One of our favorite activities is cleaning up an area. In the above image, our Utah State Coordinator, Nate Hawkes organized a clean up activity along the Bonneville Shoreline Trail, in Provo Canyon at Canyon Glen Park near Johnson’s Bowl. His crew of 8 collected an estimated 150 pounds of trash, enough to fill over a half dozen large trash bags of litter.
- In Colorado, Clean Trails’ State Coordinator Lindsay Walton kicked off a collaborative effort with Jefferson County Open Space at Mt. Falcon, which is nestled in the foothills just west of Denver. Just a few hours of spreading our message of responsible recreation, netted close to a dozen prospective volunteers, while touching close to 150 people with our message.
Consider joining us in your area, we can help you get started building a community effort at your favorite trail. Remember that Litter begets litter, areas that are littered always get more littered, while areas that are litter free, tend to stay that way.
