Pack it in Pack it out
We have an abundance of trails in the Ogden Area, and leaving your picnic in the middle of a trail is a big no-no. If you pack in goodies, make sure that you pack out the empty containers. Because not everyone is aware of this rule, I like to hike with an extra bag to pick up any clutter I do stumble across on the trail. It’s a green habit to pick up and Mother Nature will thank you for it by giving you some good karma.
Are you ready to start your volunteer adventure? Volunteer options range from a couple hours to ongoing opportunities. You can become a weed warrior, adopt-a-river, adopt-a-park, spend a day cleaning the trials or volunteer with different foundations and non-profits. To find out how you can help go to www.ogdencity.com or call 801-629-8214.
