Volunteer To Clean Up National Parks

 republished from   Alt National Park Service

National Volunteer Action Needed:
The administration’s latest shutdown plan to use entrance fees to clean up our parks will dig our parks into an even bigger financial hole. Under the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act, entrance fees are supposed to be funneled towards long-term projects to enhance the visitor experience, not day-to-day functioning. Our parks are currently a mess! We need you to help us clean them up. We are declaring this week a National Park Clean Up Week. If you want to join in every evening this week meet at your closest national park and help us collect trash. In comments below post which national park you are willing to help at (try to connect with others and make a team of volunteers). It’s time to help protect and save our national parks! It’s a shame that the GOP is playing politics while our parks are being destroyed! The picture below is of volunteers who are helping keep Yosemite National Park clean amid the government shutdown. Please message Alt National Park Service your clean up pictures and we will share them.
