Local Senator Wants To Help Keep Parks Clean

Posted by wlpo on March 9, 2012

In an effort to try and keep roadsides clean, groups and organizations often “adopt-a-highway” inIllinois.  There’s now an idea to start an “adopt-a-park”.

State Senator Sue Rezin is sponsoring the bill that would allow people or groups to adopt a park or part of a park to collect litter. Rezin says theDNRbudget keeps getting cut so they could use helping hands.

Like on roads, signs would be put up saying this person or group adopted a part of a state park.  The bill will be sent to the full Senate this spring.
