I would suggest people try doing this with their smaller, local community parks. I was at a playground in Letchworth yesterday, and was appalled at the amount and type of trash laying all over the ground.....
But then , again, it is a LARGE state park, so they should have enough funding and manpower to keep up on this type of stuff.
I think starting with smaller local parks would have more of an effect with the local community and media. I also would expect that these parks/areas have little to no funding, and could use/appreciate more help than larger state or county parks. I'm also pretty sure there would be less red tape to go through, and might even get volunteers from other local groups to join in also.
Either way, this sounds like a great idea.....
How about putting together a forum category (sorry if one already exists), where people could post times, locales, and generally organize these local clean-ups?
As an example from this post alone, it sounds like several of you are local to Pike NY. So am I, but I havent come across your names or posts in any of the forums yet. (I'm a newbie!.. )
I think clean-ups like this would not only help the community and the public image of Geocaching in general, butwould also help us organize and grow in local groups.
Any way, I'm getting longwinded now, so I'll stop.
