About two dozen volunteers from the Kanza Group gathered in the cool morning air on April 4th for Stream Cleanup Day.
The group focused on a section of Indian Creek along the Johnson County Hiking and Biking Trail at 103rd and Quivira. It looked like a small enough stretch, but there was plenty to do.
Richard Voss coordinated the effort, handing out gloves, trash bags, t-shirts, and encouragement.
In addition to some great fellowship and fresh air, volunteers were treated to a herd of deer passing through the area.
After most of the work was done, a young man who jogs regularly along the trail stopped and asked a couple of the remaining volunteers if they had anything to do with the cleanup.
Yes indeed, they said, to which the jogger replied, “Thanks.”
