Southside Park Cleanup, 2016

Sacramento, California, U.S.

For this year’s Caring for Our Watershed project, Molly Crofoot and Miana Muscat of The MET Sacramento focused on a park / pond area adjacent to their school. Their goal was to build on the success of past clean-up efforts in order to organize more volunteers and more thoroughly cover a greater area. They see the possibility of building an annual, if not bi-annual tradition of involving their classmates as stewards of this park so close to their own campus. To that end, Molly and Miana recruited approximately 30 volunteers to help with their clean-up event at Southside Park. Because they had so many volunteers, they split into groups for litter pick-up as well as invasive species removal. Molly and her classmates reported having a fun day in the field, with a lot accomplished—with perfect timing just before the Earth Day celebration held at the park.
