GROC is sponsoring the 4th annual pick up the parks event. We actually started this event over 5 years ago and now it has become a great local event and gets our season started off by cleaning up our beautiful parks.


This year GROC will be cleaning up in Tryon Park, please come join us


Join the Monroe County Department of Parks, Keep America Beautiful, and Cascades Recovery for “Pick Up the Parks.” This great parks stewardship event will expand to several parks in 2013 including Abraham Lincoln, Churchville, Durand Eastman, Ellison, Genesee Valley, Greece Canal, Highland, Irondequoit Bay Marine, Irondequoit Bay West, Lehigh Valley Trail, Lucien Morin, Northampton, Ontario Beach, Powder Mills, Seneca, Tryon, and Webster Parks.

    Sounds like I can skip it without feeling guilty, especially since I have to be at work at 11:00. See you all next Wed. assuming we don't get monsooned out again.

    All for picking up the parks, but considering all the rain we've had, I have to question, is it more harm than good? Would it be possible to postpone till dryer trail conditions?

      With 43 people! We only need a small crew with different skill-sets. My vote is postpone the cleanup and create new Graffiti cleanup and HOVEL Demolition work sessions.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
