Over at Lake Pueblo State Park there is a lot of wind kicking up. That means a lot of debris gets “dropped off” where it shouldn’t be. “In Pueblo and Pueblo West we get a lot of wind and so it definitely blows a lot of debris in and around,” said Park Ranger Darcy Mount. “We get a lot of trash. It’s not necessarily from people being bad, although some of it is, but the wind blows a lot of stuff in. Lots of camping and picnicking things, and also lots of fishing debris.”
That is why the annual clean up event sponsored by Colorado Parks and Wildlife is so important. Try as they might, those Park Rangers can’t keep up. This past Earth Day, over a 100 volunteers showed up at the park and were given gloves and orange bags to fill up. They were then sent off to the four corners of the park to get to work.
“We have about 20,000 acres to choose from, and we gave people maps and let them decide where they’d like to go,” Mount said. “People went all over the wildlife area and the park itself.”
Among the list of items that they found in the past were old tires, construction waste and other oversized items. Happily they reported that this year all they picked up was “trash.” That’s still bad for the park but at least it hasn’t become an illegal dumping ground. At the end of the pickup day, the volunteers were given a BBQ lunch to thank them for their hard work.
“The park looks awesome this morning,” Park Ranger Mount said on Monday after the clean up. “It does your heart good. It’s nice that other people care about the park as much as the Park Rangers do.”
