Wasatch Stewardship Project - City Creek Trash Cleanup With Keep Nature Wild

Written by

On Saturday, July 29th, Save Our Canyons collaborated with Keep Nature Wild, a dedicated volunteer organization that fosters community engagement and encourages individuals to contribute to protecting the environment.

The project was a garbage cleanup in the extended Memorial Grove Park area, and it turned out to be a great success with an impressive turnout. During the event, we were also joined by Women of the Wasatch, a local running group that promotes running in the Wasatch and fosters connections within the running community through meetups and activity events. To add to the event, HOKA provided shoe demos, allowing participants to test various footwear models.

Thanks to the support of nearly 20 enthusiastic volunteers, we were able to collect a total of two hundred and sixteen pounds of trash. We were thrilled to see numerous people passing by, saying hello, and willingly grabbing a bag to contribute to the cleanup efforts. The availability of resources plays a crucial role in making these cleanups successful, as it encourages more people to actively participate in preserving our natural spaces.

Thanks to everyone for your help with this event. Cheers!
