BPA cleanup needed

To the Editor:

On June 26th with assistance from the City of Federal Way our Chapter of Trout Unlimited is going to be hosting a cleanup/restoration to the Celebration/BPA trail here in Federal Way.

I intend to solicit Petco and PetsMart in helping us spread the word on how important it is to scoop your poop when walking this trail. In the last several months it is getting pretty bad for us joggers who use the trail on a daily basis and end up dodging the waste left on or along aside the trails.

We intend to educate the public on the issue of the waste and its affects to our watershed along Panther Lake. We will be setting up booths at the Aquatic entrance to the trail as well as a booth near Celebration park. I am hoping to also help the city for volunteers to help remove scotch broom along the trail adjacent to the Aquatic center.

The city will furnish all tools and removal once the scotch broom has been cut. We also intend to contact residents living along the trail who have had their fences vandalized with graffiti.

Our date has been set for June 26th from 9am till Noon and encourage all volunteers to meet near the Aquatic center south parking lot by 8:30am.
