A Clean Park is a Happy Park

Today, GU EcoAction, Green GW, and AU EcoSense all collaborated for a clean-up of Glover Archbold Park as part of the annual Potomac Watershed Cleanup.

Here are the stats:
Volunteers: 75 (approximately)---The three schools made up about 1/3 of this!
Bags of trash: 80
Plastic shopping bags: 250
Top 3 brands: Coke, McDonalds, Budweiser
Cigarette butts: 500
Tires: 3
Computers: 1
Car alternators: 1
Most unusual items: Washington Globe street light and a deer skeleton

Fantastic weather, beautiful nature, meaningful service, and good company--what's not to love?
