September 2021 News

The August heat didn't stop us from continuing our fight against litter, as we finished up the last of the summer youth camps and continued to give away free tarps at our educational events.

We are looking forward to a number of events coming up this September. The Litter Ends Here program will be at Waggin' in the Waterpark on September 11th and we are lending our support to Friends of the Reedy River during their river cleanup event on September 18th.
