Earth Day awareness, and a love for Laurel Hill Park in Lorton, brought 17 volunteers out for a trash pick up event on April 22. The two-hour event was held in conjunction with the Fairfax County Park Authority and Clean Fairfax. Volunteers collected 29 bags of trash and several unusual oversized items, including: plastic pipes of many colors and sizes, a sneaker, and a headlight cover. The most common items were plastic bottles, beverage cans, and plastic bags.
This effort by the Park Volunteer Team, combined with efforts the NoVA Disc Golf Association members have taken for ongoing trash pick up on the adjoining course in the Park, is making a visible difference.
