What participants said about their experience
I really feel this program helps people appreciate parks they may have never been to and to see the important of how we can have a positive impact on our environments.
Being able to work together as a team to improve our ecosystem. I like that our kids got to participate, they really enjoyed it.
The sun on my back, the smell of the forest, and the sense of accomplishment by filling the big disposal bag and saving the world one blackberry cane at a time.
