Ever Been Dumpster Diving, Little Creek? Try It Out During Earth Day at Mount Trashmore Park, This Saturday, April 18!
April 16, 2015
Did you know that Mount Trashmore Park, a 165-acre public park near Little Creek, lived a past life as a landfill? And did you know that the park's aptly named Mount Trashmore is a 60-foot-high, manmade hill of compressed refuse and soil? Now a bustling and scenic community space, Mount Trashmore Park is better associated with outdoor recreation than garbage — a prime example of the positive social and environmental impact of "going green."
That said, we can think of few better places to celebrate Earth Day than at Mount Trashmore Park. That's probably why Virginia Green, an environmental initiative of the state of Virginia, hosts an Earth Day Celebration at the park every year. This year, the event will take place on Saturday, April 18, transforming Mount Trashmore Park into a family-friendly setting of eco awareness. Go dumpster diving in search of recyclables, listen to live music, shop fair-trade vendors, watch a "trashion" runway show, jump in a bounce house, and much more! Be sure to bring your household waste to be recycled!
