On the morning of Saturday, April 23 more than 50 neighbors around Lake Nona came together to celebrate Earth Day. Various groups met in Laureate Park, East Park and NorthLake Park to pick up trash around the common areas and waterways.
Litter is not just an eye-sore. When litter is on sidewalks or along curbs, it may get washed down in to storm drains during heavy rains. Eventually this water leads to the nearest waterway or ocean. If the water becomes polluted from litter, we can no longer use it for drinking or recreation.
Animals may mistake the items of litter floating in the water as food and could choke on them or get entangled in it.
Today, Lake Nona is more litter free thanks to our Earth Day Community Clean-Up volunteers!
