Millions of visitors go to Presque Isle each year and keeping those areas clean is a big job. That’s why park staff members are looking for help.
Even a few people can make a mess so you can imagine what 4 million visitors might do in a season at Presque Isle State Park. John Laskos, of PI, says, “Keeping the park clean is a huge chore and we rely on volunteers to come out and help us do that”.
The result is the Adopt a Beach Program. From May through October, the park staff coordinates volunteers and groups who want to adopt a section of the park to keep clean. They are looking for people willing to pitch in a few hours a month to keep the park looking good.
Laskos says, “We’re looking for dedicated individuals willing to come the second Saturday of every month, willing to put in a couple of three hours every month to help keep their certain area clean on the beach”.
The hours for the program at 9am through noon. The first clean-up is scheduled for May12th. To learn more, call 814-833-7424.
