March 19, 2012 10:30 a.m. Weather 0 degrees, blue skies Findings: Still not finished cleaning out the corner of the fence area, but filled a bag quickly with plastic bags and business fliers. Back to the same location tomorrow. The large dumpsters are being dragged away from the side of the Sports Center. There’s also a team stripping nails out of sign structures in the parking lot…two guys working, two guys watching. I considered having one of them take our archival photo, but passed on that.
I would like to engage some/any interested parties from the school to help with what I call, the school slope. It doesn’t matter how often I clean up there, there is more lunch time packaging routinely heaped there. The waterfowl have already begun to nest below this slope. It brings to mind some photographs and a story I read some time ago…something that really stuck with me.
I spoke to Lisa, from the City of Calgary, today…talked to her about the frequency of bin pick-up, the accessibility of bags and the Adopt-a-Park program. She applauded my work. It was good to make the connection.
