Sadly and predictably, the annual student end-of-school drinking and destruction party took place again in June inside Whispering Hill Woods. The kids left several hundred empty bottles, destroyed a whole set of our trail signs and also went into Mary Cummings Park and tore down a new Trustees sign and tossed it into the brush.
We at The Friends have started to reach out the nearby community to try to establish better relations and hopefully stop the annual destruction, but we were not effective enough; there is much more to be done on this.
If you are interested in working with us to try to heal this situation use our contact form to get in touch.
Here is a video that Jon Sachs made during a break from the cleanup effort:
