The group is for those who would like to help clean up trash from hiking trails in the area, starting with the Genesee Riverway Trail. During the winter we’ll be meeting fairly early (9 or 9:30?) on Saturday or Sunday mornings and working on the trails for about 90 minutes. When the days get longer we may also start meeting on weekday nights.
We’ll have at least one organizational meeting to discuss the best ways to go about this task. Please let us know if you'd like to be a co-organizer and help run this group and our meetups.
We’re going to get started this winter while the trash is easy to see because of the lack of vegetation. We’ll try to schedule regular meetups, which will be canceled if the weather is inhospitable or if the ground is covered by snow or is too wet.
I expect that we’ll be able to get the county or city to dispose of the trash we pick up. But we may have to get started by bringing it home and putting it in our own trash pickups.
I hope you'll join this group and attend our meetups. You'll help our community and the environment, get some exercise and meet some new people.
