Micro-Trash Pickup near Aquatic Center

Micro-trash, especially cigarette butts, build up along the Aquatic Center and Swift Creek Lake. Come by on Friday morning to improve park appearance and water quality.

We will be meeting at the neighboring picnic area, near access to Powhatan trail (approx. [masked], [masked]). Gloves and bags will be provided.

    Good job, everyone. We had a good turnout despite the damp start, and accomplished a lot. Thank you to everyone who came.

    We cleared micro-trash out around the edge of the pool fence and made a dent in the litter at the bottom of the hill. This really does make a difference in our local water quality!

    It looks like there are more picnic areas to focus on and we should be scheduling another event next Friday, August 5th, at the same time.

    Due to the weather, we will schedule a follow-up pickup next week, but Rachael and I will be at the park today for a shortened pick-up session if anyone is still interested.
