Join fellow Friends as we gather to You’re invited to join fellow Friends as we gather to Leave It Better by picking up trash at two DuPont parking lots. We’ve lamented the impact burgeoning visitation to our local park has had, here’s an opportunity to make a positive contribution to the environment. The Leave It Better campaign was developed by Transylvania County Tourism. They provide safety vests, trash bags and other tools. Participants will receive a token to redeem at the Brevard Visitor Center for a logo shopping bag or pint cup.
Our first foray will take place on April 8. Meet at RH Barn at 3:00 p.m. to determine potential for carpooling and sort out logistics. We’ll travel to our sites, clean up, and memorialize the event in a photo featuring us and our trash. Those interested will adjourn to the Cedar Mountain Canteen for a post-mortem, if COVID allows. Additional dates, all Thursdays, are June 3, July 8, and September 9.
Documenting our efforts puts us in the running for a $2,500 grant to be spent on a green initiative of our own. While larger organizations may have the lead in going for the gold, this is a great opportunity to do something good in the larger ‘hood and spend some socially-distanced time outdoors together.
If you are interested in joining the crew, please contact Susan at 301-862-9721 or email@example.com and keep it clean!
Venue: Robin Hood Barn
