PURIFYING PARKS EVENTS:
Purifying parks is a program we have put together to help clean the parks in Lubbock by working with volunteers to collect park litter. Lubbock is a beautiful city and we want our parks to reflect that same beauty. Let's make these places as enjoyable as possible by cleaning up Lubbock, one park at a time.
Mae Simmons Park Event:
Saturday, August 13 was our first event, where we cleaned up Mae Simmons Park along side locals as well as the local clubs: The Lubbock Wind Riders Disc Golf club and The Texas Tech Society of Conservative Biology.
Mae Simmons is one of the most popular parks in Lubbock for disk golfing and hiking. Over 30 people volunteered to help clean up the litter and over the course of three hours, we collected 42, fifty gallon bags of waste from the park. The change in the park from just this small effort was dramatic.

Most of the garbage collected at Mae Simmons was recyclable. By handing our waste responsibly, we can all make an impact!
