Since 2000, the Manchester Urban Ponds Restoration Program has organized 105 clean-up events. Over the past 16 years, 858 volunteers have spent 3,185.5 hours collecting 2,165 bags of trash! This does not include the items illegally “dumped” such as shopping carts (92), tires (392), car batteries, other car parts, construction debris, and other items. In addition, the value of volunteer time spent at these clean-ups has amounted to over $55,000 over these past 16 years!
Spring 2017 Pond and Park Cleanups
Please dress appropriately for weather (there are no “rain dates”) and wear rubber knee boots! Latex gloves and trash bags will be provided. Just bring yourself, a friend, and a sense of community spirit! Please arrive no later than 8:50am as we will break into groups and promptly begin cleanups at 9:00am.
Thank you to all volunteers who helped out over the years!
