The Parrotheads had a large contingent at the annual Hoop Pole Creek Preserve nature trail cleanup on January 14th. This event is organized by the Coastal Federation, and helps to keep this 31-acre urban park clean and inviting. Approximately 20 Parrotheads met the Coastal Federation organizers at 10AM and fanned out along the trail and marshes, picking up several bags of aluminum cans, plastic bottles, plastic bags, styrofoam, drinking cups, and other trash. Our efforts, combined with the Coastal Foundation volunteers made short work of the litter, and we were finished shortly after 11AM.
