Clean up camp

July 6, 2010

I travelled to Birds Hill Park for a camping trip this past weekend and once again my campsite had litter scattered all over it when I arrived. The obvious thing to say is park users need to do a better job of cleaning up their waste. What really irks me, though, is when I visited the park campground office on the way to my site there were at least 10 parks staff hanging around. Why is the park such a mess when there appears to be more than enough staff to patrol and clean up the campsites in between guests?

As the Manitoba government is seeking public input into developing a management plan for Birds Hill Park, it is a choice time for us to let them know we would like a clean and healthy park, not another garbage hill.
