Since 2000, the Manchester Urban Ponds Restoration Program has organized 112 clean-up events. Over the past 19 seasons of cleanups, 987 volunteers have spent approximately 3,468 hours collecting 2,288 bags of trash! This does not include the items illegally “dumped” such as shopping carts (97), tires (418), 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 $58,000 over these past 19 seasons!
Thank you to all volunteers who helped out over the years!
