💥Several people have asked me the past few weeks if I signed up to do it, what group I am a part of, what volunteer groups are there to join, and if I’d like to volunteer for Alum Rock Park or Sierra Vista. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💥 My response, I am someone who loves to hike and decided I am fortunate to hike fast, and carrying extra weight is not an issue, so I might as well pick up trash. I love these parks so much; everyone is so friendly and welcoming. It only makes me want to protect it and clean it up. No strings attach. Just do it!

💥 You don’t walk into a museum and mess with the Mona Lisa or trample over the artwork.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💥 You don’t go to the exhibits that say “do not enter.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💥 You follow where it tells you to go.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💥 When exhibits are closed, it is closed. Don’t trespass.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💥You don’t toss trash at the artwork, either.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💥Admire the beauty.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💥Please take a picture near it that doesn’t include touching it.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💥Leave only footprints.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
