Pick Up The Parks Event
Monroe County Department of Parks, along with many local recreation and environmental groups for “Pick Up the Parks.” This event is designed to foster stewardship of our 21 parks and 12,000 acres within. We are all stewards of the great outdoors, so we encourage you to do your part to keep our parks, our waterways, and watersheds clean and green.
Pick up the parks has been running for 5 years and GROC has been part of the planning and participation every year.
This year we were charged with Tryon Park. Although GROC volunteers keep the park in great shape all year round there is always more that can get cleaned up. This year we also had some of there Trail Crew doing some trails work and many of the volunteers worked on cleaning debris and leafs off the trails.
Thanks to the more than 25 individuals who joined in the Tryon clean up and the 100's of other volunteers who cleaned up the other 21 other wonderful Monroe County Parks.
3.25 tons of waste collected (6,500 pounds) of which 1.3 tons (36%) of it was salvageable for recycling (tires, metal, glass, plastic, paper, cardboard, etc.)
