On Saturday October 1, Volunteers from VHSF, OLPNA, and PSTCC Student Veterans met at Sharps Ridge to perform a “Fall Clean-Up” of the park. Tasks performed were gathering up trash throughout the park, trimming the vegetation growth on the overlook slope, general maintenance at the picnic areas and some structural repairs on the decking at the overlook. It was noted that there was significantly less trash, specifically used drug paraphernalia and prophylactics than during the last clean-up. We are viewing this as a sign that the more positive traffic visiting the park is helping to diminish the negative traffic.
