Walkabout Keeps Tubbs Hill In Shape

Our own Walkabout is featured in a story in the next Tubbs Hill Foundation newsletter:

On any given day while enjoying a walk on Tubbs Hill you may come upon a woman with a knapsack on her back, a walking stick in one hand, and a bulging plastic grocery bag in the other. If she is using a small black bag to pick up dog pooh, you have just come upon our very own “Pooh Fairy”! She has been using around 8000 of these small bags every year, donated by a generous friend, to pick up after people’s dogs, saving all of us unsuspecting walkers/joggers from a very unpleasant experience. (THANK YOU to those dog owners who keep their dogs on leashes and pick up after them!) Our Pooh Fairy states that fall through spring seems to be the worst time for people not picking up after their/Tubbs Hill newsletter. More here.

DFO: Walkabout (Kim) has been my inspiration for cleaning up along the three miles of waterfront that I walk each work day.

Question: Have you ever picked up litter?
