Pliking = Picking up Litter while hIKING or bIKING!
Pliking is a term adapted from the word "Plogging," which is a Swedish fitness activity that combines picking up litter and jogging. We meet at different trail heads and parks to pick up litter and go for a hike.
Pliking is a great way to improve the environment while enjoying the outdoors, as well as building strength, balance and flexibility. We also enjoy close relationships from working together while creating a more beautiful community.
As a club, we have adopted 29th St Trailhead, which we maintain not only by pliking, but also pruning, pulling noxious weeds and removing graffiti. We participate in a Litter Awareness Program, which includes booths at trail heads and special events, as well as surveys and presentations.
Since we began in September of 2018, club members have volunteered a total of 995 hours (valued at $23,283 for grant applications) and picked up 373 large bags of trash, plus large items (July 2020).
We are affiliated with Pliking Inc, a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to litter education and cleanup through promoting the sport of Pliking. For information on their programs, visit www.pliking.org.
