Cleaning up garbage at Oak Park

Updated: July 29, 2020 10:23 PM

At just 10 years old, Tylee Savoye looked around her neighborhood park and saw how much garbage was lying around. So she gathered her friends and decided to do something about it!


"My friend Sophia & I made a group, she made the T-shirts," Tylee says. "And we just decided to clean up, because we realized how dirty it is everywhere."

Tylee says she hopes to head out there every Wednesday, for a little bit of cleaning, followed by a little bit of playing. After all, it is summer vacation!

And they also have a feathery friend, or mascot of sorts, offering up some moral support and smiles as the kids help every park visitor stay Positvely Northland.
