61st Annual Presque Isle Spring Clean-Up

Hundreds of volunteers gathered at Presque Isle this morning to get the park ready for spring.
 
Today was the 61st annual Presque Isle spring clean-up.
 
Community members picked up trash on the beaches.
 
Volunteers said they love the park so much, they wanted to do their part to keep it clean.

"It makes a big difference in cleaning up the beaches in the area because any bit of plastic that we can take off the beach is plastic that does not get into the water," Stacey Marendt, an environmental educator, said.

The event was a part of a state-wide clean  up effort.

Representatives from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection lent a hand at the park today, too.
