Picking Up After Your Picnic
Friday, July 23, 2010
Prospect Park has over eight million visitors a year. On summer weekends, the park is packed with bikers, walkers, picnickers, and kite flyers. But despite the daily trash collection and a campaign that encourages cleaning up, on Monday mornings, the park is also packed with trash. Garry Osgood decided to do something about it.
Osgood belongs to the non-profit group FIDO (Fellowship In the Interest of Dogs and their Owners) and volunteers in the park picking up trash.
