On Sunday, the Annual Cameron Park WolfPack Clean Up will be hosted.
The events will include a bike ride or family hike around the park at 2 p.m., followed by a park clean-up at 4 p.m. and finally at 6 p.m. there will be a catered meal by Dave’s Burger Barn.
The only thing required is a dinner reservation, which is complimentary to all, so The Bear Mountain employees said they encourage attendees to bring friends.
Dallas junior Ruthie Rutledge said community is an important part of her life. To give back to the Waco community and spend time with the many families and friends in the area are all reasons why people should attend, she said.
“Waco is such a cool place and this is such a cool way to give back to the community of where I live, spend time with other people, clean up our environment, but also get to enjoy the weather and free food,” Rutledge said. “It’s clean, healthy fun.”
With Earth Day right around the corner on April 22nd, employees of The Bear Mountain Outdoor Sports Store said they want Waco locals to get involved and contribute to the clean-up efforts.
According to the City of Waco website, “The park is an oasis with towering trees, two rivers, breathtaking cliffs and a National Recreation Trail system. Since the William Cameron Family donated the parkland more than 100 years ago, the 400-acre park has been constantly abuzz with parties, festivals and sports.”
Even though littering and dumping are against the park regulations, it tends to still happen and therefore The Bear Mountain wants to get an effort together to help clean the park up.
