September is Public Lands Month and in celebration, BHA members across North America will be participating in our Public Land Pack Out, a chapter-to-chapter competition aimed at ridding our shared lands and waters of more than 1,000 bags of garbage.
Pennsylvania Chapter members and friends will meet September 9th at Evansburg State Park to clean up along the Skippack and Towamencin Creeks in Collegeville, PA. We will meet at the parking lot on Route 73 near Evansburg Road (see Google Maps link and map below) at 4:30 p.m. and split up to cover as much ground as possible.
This area of the park was selected as it is popular for both hunters and anglers and has seen heavy use this summer by all outdoor user groups.
Please bring a mask, boots, gloves, trashbags, a backpack, hunters orange and your favorite BHA hat.
Please RSVP below so we know how many folks to expect.
Even if you cannot attend this or another Public Land Pack Out Event, you can still support this effort. Our friends at First Lite have generously offered to donate $5 to BHA for every bag of trash packed out, up to $5,000 during the month of September. First Lite also will be giving away 20 gift cards valued at $100 each to the top 20 public land trash packers. Additionally, 10 gift cards will be given away throughout the month to those who share a photo of the Public Land Pack Out on Instagram or Facebook with the hashtag #publiclandpackout and #publiclandowner
Grab some garbage bags and help us leave your public lands a little better than you found them, then post your results for a chance to win.
