HELENA — Last Chance Audubon held a clean-up at Nature Park.

Volunteers of the non-profit environmental group gathered for a day of cleaning the park. The group completed another clean up at Nature Park last month and gathered close to 500 pounds of trash.

In this clean up, they collected close to 200 pounds. Last Chance Audubon has partnered with the City of Helena to deliver the trash by dropping it off near a trail for the city to come pick up the same day.

Last Chance Audubon says this opportunity to clean the waterways in the park is one that benefits all species.

“It makes us feel real good, and we as birders are out here a lot and so we don't have to look at that trash. It makes us feel better when we are out here in a more pristine nature environment," says Janice Miller, the President of Last Chance Audubon.

The group also bagged almost 300 pounds of trash from the K-mart ponds.
