Love Your Lake Burlington Day 1


We picked up so much litter today! 2,724 pieces! Beachway Park and Burlington Beach had a lot of tiny pieces of plastic in the sand but were fairly well maintained. We had a great group of volunteers so the cleanup went very quickly! We managed to collect 1,173 pieces. In the afternoon we moved on to Spencer Smith Park and focused on a small rocky area that was loaded with plastic pieces. We picked up 1,551 pieces within 1.5 hours. We also found two syringes.
