Volunteers tackle ‘Dump’ cleanup
A section of the southern end of the Sand Creek Trail known as “The Dump” got a bit of beautification in September, thanks to a cadre of volunteers, neighborhood residents and exercise enthusiasts.
A team coordinated by Community Works and partnering with the Community Barbershop, Salon, Hub & Pub, the Council of Neighbors and Organizations, the City of Colorado Springs and Bike Colorado Springs gathered Sept. 7 to tackle some of the trash along the trail. The work, which largely took place just north of Hancock Expressway and west of Academy Bouelvards, was a good start, organizer Lisa Marie Coleman wrote on a Facebook events page, “but there is still much to do.”
