The nature oasis of Chester Creek gets a lot of traffic in Duluth, and dozens of residents helped clear trash from the park on Sunday with help from Burrito Union.

About 20 volunteers turned out to the annual event that cleans hundreds of pounds of garbage from the park every spring. The creek runs right next to Burrito Union so the restaurant owners organize the cleanup to help give back to the community.

“Everything is cyclical. Just give a little, and then you get a little. It's important in every facet of life. Just do good and good will come to you,” Organizer Maxwell McGruder said.

The good deed did come with a reward. McGruder said volunteers got a free pint of beer or soda and half off a burrito for helping with the cleanup.
