Just a quick blog recap of our 2nd Illinois Park Project event at Beaver Dam State Park this past Saturday. Only 5lbs of trash! We had a great day enjoying the sun, all the green that’s finally here (thank you, spring!) and each other’s company. Thanks again to our volunteers for choosing to spend the afternoon with us. We sincerely couldn’t do it without you!
When we first arrived, we were stopped by park maintenance who excitedly asked if they could take our photo for the Facebook page. Heck yes! They thanked us and shared their gratitude for what we were out doing.
We strolled around the small park; the lake, walk-in picnic area, some back trails. We stopped for a snack in the campground and after 2 and a half hours of scouting the surprisingly tidy park; we grabbed lunch at the restaurant on the lake.
I HIGHLY recommend Beaver Dam State Park. It’s slowly becoming one of my favorite local parks. It’s come a really long way since my first visit a few years ago.
I was so excited to have a couple new faces join forces with us as well as some from our first event! Here are some of my favorite snaps of the day.
Next month’s event will be held down at Shawnee! Date and park TBD. Check out our links below to stay in the know!
