Help Clean Up Trash at Your Local Parks!
In this episode I’m out here cleaning up trash at the new trout fishing spot at Don Fox Park in Tennessee. Realistic Fishing is known for cleaning up local parks when the localities and the companies hired to keep them clean fail to do so. Parks with streams or creeks are particularly prone to the buildup of litter and trash. Combined trash from visitors throwing things on the ground and litter washing in from upstream means even more cleanup is necessary. Unfortunately, trashy parks are such a problem, this is the 9th video in my Park Clean Up Series.
I’m honestly surprised at the amount of trash that was laying around Don Fox Park. This is a very popular park in Wilson Co TN, complete with a nice playground, walking track and trails. There are usually quite a few cars in the parking lot whenever I drive by and I was shocked at how many people just kept walking the trails, chatting with friends or on their phones and walking past all the trash and not even giving it another thought.
It really is unfortunate that no one else wanted to pick up the trash that was laying around. Hopefully all of the bags of garbage I removed from the park today will make it a more pleasant experience for fishermen and everyone else who visits. People were looking at me like I was crazy for cleaning up the park. I think they are crazy for not pitching in. A few people may help clean up the park at times but I know from the looks I got many of them don’t. I assume people would be losing their minds and telling everyone they know if this trash caused someone to get sick or hurt.
