Ridgeline Trail Litter Pickup

September 15, 2008

Thirteen of us armed with bags and gloves began our litter pickup hike at the Fox Hollow parking lot. We picked up a small amount of trash but we had no way to gather glass, the evidence of numerous car cloutings. The two mile hike in the forest took us to the Spencer Butte parking lot where we had our most challenging work. Sometimes it seemed that most people must be smoking and drinking before they weave up to the summit. Lou Maenz was named Litter Lou when she dragged out trash from poison oak and other awkward spots. If we could have had live music for our bending over endeavors, Bonnie suggested A Litter Day Music, a spin on Mozart’s Eine Kleine Nachtmusic. Back at our cars, Bonnie Richman had enough bottles to return for $1.00. It was fun to have two newcomers to Eugene, Moseh Rapport and Jim Weldon. Moshe just moved from Hawaii and heard about our club at the Eugene Celebration. They had lots of questions and were impressed with the Ridgeline Trail System. We hope to see them on another hike. Jim asked “When is the next litter pick up?”

Participants were: Jim and Sharon Duncan, Pat Eash, Margaret and Richard Essenberg, Janet Jacobsen (leader), Lana Lindstrom, Lou Maenz, Jim Pierce, Moshe Rapaport, Bonnie Richman, Pat Soussan and Jim Weldon.
