Mining firm helps tidy up Little St. Mary’s park

Volunteers at last Saturday’s cleanup of Little St. Mary’s River Park on the north side of US 90 just west of Macclenny collected about a dozen trash bags of litter and another usual item — a vehicle seat found in the woods that surround the park.

The seat and a large tire were hauled off to the dump by Douglas Moore, a local landowner and proponent of Oldcastle Southern Group’s mining plans in the southeastern county.

The mining company sponsored the lunch that followed the morning cleanup on June 15. It was held in partnership with the county’s recently launched anti-litter program dubbed “Keep Baker Beautiful.”

The program offers cleanup supplies like vests and garbage bags to volunteers who wish to help keep areas of the county free of garbage and debris.
