Barth: Ponderosa Park needs your help

Ponderosa Park needs your help.

All assortments of litter accumulates on a daily basis. To alleviate the problem, “Friends of Ponderosa Park” — a volunteer corps — meets each Sunday at noon to collect and responsibly dispose of litter to keep the trail, picnic areas, and the Basalt Edible Garden litter-free for all to enjoy. We work for one hour or as needed, leaving plenty of afternoon for volunteers to recreate afterwards. Please help if you can.

To volunteer, please just show up at the Basalt Edible Garden or call Charles Barth at (970) 767-2532 for more info. All volunteers will receive a “Friends of Ponderosa Park” T-shirt thanks to our generous sponsors. Local businesses are also encouraged to get involved by donating to our non-profit cause. Thank you for helping maintain our beautiful environment — trails, parks, and waterways.

To date, I have collected more than 85 pounds of litter, just in the last four weeks! Hope to see you Sunday!
