Changing the Landscape: One Bag At a Time

Magic on the Pond Today

April 5, 2012, 1:00 p.m.  Weather 3 degrees, sunshine and cloud. We received lots of snow last night and I am so grateful that Chandos managed to get their grounds clean-up completed when they did.  I didn’t pick litter yesterday; the weather just wasn’t great and the snow was falling.  I headed over today though, and filled another bag with a variety of candy packages, industrial garbage and plastic bags.  I also took one good spill on the far side of the pond…rubber boots and snow – not a good mix!

 It was a joy to scan the Chandos site clean-up!  Awesome!

Parking Lot Ship Shape!

Today’s crud included another large piece of foam insulation, hauled out of pond’s edge and many candy wrappers.  I also included in my tasks for the day, a great deal of dog poop detail.  It makes me so disappointed about irresponsible dog owners.

Early in the afternoon, Katie, of Chandos, dropped by and presented me with a $1,000.00 donation to the Calgary Diocese Feed the Hungry Program.  I was so happy about this and while I wasn’t really dressed for a photo op, I wanted to feature Katie today and express my gratitude for the donation.  I am going to use my next post as an opportunity to  feature my movie of the day.

  1. I love the shot of the geese.

    And more importantly I am so impressed with the great clean up job you’re doing. I wish people were more responsible picking up after their dogs, too. Don’t know if it’s something you could pull off (or maybe it’s already in place there), but I am seeing more and more dispensers with doggy bags (supposedly degradable) for scooping up after the pups.
