Great American Cleanup Project Benefits Martin Nature Park in Oklahoma City
Oklahoma City's Martin Nature Park recently received a facelift as city, state, nonprofit and private industry teamed up to celebrate the Great American Cleanup, during Oklahoma’s Arbor Week.
Keep America Beautiful state affiliate Keep Oklahoma Beautiful and local affiliate OKC Beautiful, as well as the Oklahoma City Community Foundation, P&K Equipment, Warren CAT and Oklahoma Forestry Services worked together, along with about 30 volunteers on March 24-25 to enhance the park’s natural areas.
“It is exciting when organizations can work together and really make a significant impact on a park that so many people enjoy,” said George Geissler, State Forester and director of Oklahoma Forestry Services. “None of us could have accomplished so much in such a short time working alone. This project really embraces the spirit of the Great American Cleanup and Arbor Week.”
