Nominated by Dolores Park Works, Dolores Park has been designated as a Leave No Trace Hot Spot. Woo Hoo!
Um, what the heck does that mean? It means that we will receive $2,000 (we need to raise another $8k) plus tons of “expert consultation on solutions and program implementation, training, educational materials, visits from the Subaru/Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers, creation of locally-tailored programs to meet site-specific needs, volunteer support and overall assistance in putting the Leave No Trace program into action.”
Basically, we’re going to get some help from the experts on how to clean up this park and keep it clean, something we can all agree needs to happen.
We are looking for volunteers that represent the diversity of the park to join a LNT working group to help us develop and implement this program.It’s not going to be designed as a “war on fun” but rather creating a culture of “responsible irresponsibleness” (a mouthful isn’t it).
We need to get started soon, so please email me if you are interested.
