{Shaun Hines and Steven Leitao} Shaun Hines and Steven Leitao from the Community Partners in Action’s SOAR (Seeing Our Abilities Realized) program will lead groups of youth to help us clean and maintain the Big Falls, picnic and parking areas at the site.
We asked Wajid Abrar and his teenage son Ahmed to help us pick up litter on Sunday evenings and Monday mornings at the park, when the need is greatest. They kindly expressed their availability to help us. {Wajid and Ahmed Abrar}
