Cleanup Day On The White Rock Creek Trail
I decided to join The Friends Of The White Rock Creek Trail and help them with their trail clean up efforts this morning. Unfortunately, I got a late start and didn’t make it to the kick-off at 8:00 am. On the way there I did see a few people already on the trail, picking up trash. The staging area at Harry Moss Park was still up and the nice guys from the City of Dallas set me up with a few trash bags.
I rolled back towards Richardson and found a spot that wasn’t getting worked on. The trail didn’t seem so bad, until I started to pick up the trash. By the time I was finished with my section of the trail, I had completely filled one of the trash bags.
I rolled up further and met a few folks working, including FWRCT President Marc Mumby (see pic below). They had several bags complete and hard at work at that particular part of the trail. I opted to ride further up the trail and find a section that wasn’t worked on yet. I was able to find a small section near Central Expressway that needed some help.
After that, I made my way back to the staging area, grabbing a few bits and pieces that may have been missed along the way.
It was nice to do something good and help out the city’s parks. There were quite a few folks who expressed their appreciation for our work.
