Cowboy Pledge Ogden River Parkway Clean Up May 2013
On May 30, 2013 Cowboy Pledge volunteers gathered at the MTC Learning Park in north Ogden, Utah to help clean up a section of the Ogden River Parkway. This great nature area shares a site with the Ogden City Botanical Gardens and is one of highlights along the Ogden River Parkway.
After receiving instructions and picking up supplies, volunteers split into teams and started to work on cleaning up the trail at Monroe Boulevard working their way east on the river bank and the parkway trail. They soon were picking up cans, bottles, candy wrappers and other trash.
They had a great time working together trying not to miss anything and by the time they reached Harrison Boulevard they had filled two large garbage bags with all kinds of trash.
The sound of the river along with the sweet smell of flowering trees and blossoming plants in the botanical gardens helped make the walk back to the cars a real treat. On the way back some of the volunteers spotted a large beaver swimming in the river. They also noticed other wildlife, including song birds and wild ducks. This event ended with refreshments and a drawing for prizes in the parking lot and everyone had fun seeing what they would win.
Cowboy Pledge thanks each volunteer for helping to keep this part of the Ogden River Parkway trail clean and congratulates Ogden, Utah for providing such a great trail and botanical garden for all of Ogden's residents to enjoy.
