Starved Rock State Park's Cleanup Crew is at it again and this time they are heading back to Matthiessen State Park.
Nick Donka, cleanup crew organizer, said the group will meet at the Dells area main parking lot at 10 a.m. Monday, Aug. 14, and invites everyone willing to help clean up the park to attend.
The Illinois Department of Natural Resources will provide some bags and garbage pickers, but hikers attending the event are asked to bring pickers with them as a limited number of pickers are available.
The group started in early August when Donka created the Facebook group after finding a lot of litter on the trails while hiking with his family.
Donka hopes volunteer efforts like this one can help maintain the park for future visitors.
