No....they were volunteer stewards doing service for our community in celebration of Earth Day.
The second Clean Sweep event sponsored this week by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Cayuga County worked on the other end of the towpath trail today in Heritage Park. Twenty-five volunteers with boy cub scouts and girl scouts, and American Heritage Girls traveling from Bloomfield came out to help with the clean up in Heritage Park. Working on badges for "Care for My Environment" and "Leave No Trace," they were practicing being good stewards of our environment.
These groups and the leaders are dedicated to helping youth build integrity through service. Thanks to Amy Barra, Environmental Educator at CCE for coordinating the event.
