Since 2000, the Manchester Urban Ponds Restoration Program has organized 87 clean-up events. Over the past 12 years, 618 volunteers have spent 2,094 hours collecting 1,781 bags of trash! This does not include the items illegally “dumped” such as shopping carts, tires, 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 $40,000.00 over these past 12 years!
Thank you to all volunteers who helped out over the years!
