This past Saturday was SPREE’s annual Fall Family Stewardship Day where families joined us for a trash pick up at Johnson Habitat Park (JHP). The 12 families that attended this year’s fall stewardship event were incredibly determined and worked incredibly hard to pick up trash in even the deepest corners of the park. From the river to the playground and everything in between, after an hour and half of hard work in the sun, we removed nearly 170 gallons of trash and litter from ending up in the South Platte River! It always feels great being outside cleaning up the river, but this year we were truly impressed with the families that participated and their excitement to be stewards of the River! After cleaning up the river, we spent some time in the park playing some of our favorite activities like ‘Whose Scat is That?’, learning about decomposition rates of different common trash items, and how trash moved through our city! We also had our famous Beaver pelt, as well as other treats and games. Overall, the SPREE staff wants to thank all of the families that participated in our event this year! It is always inspiring seeing our community grow with gusto!
