Eleven volunteers came to the LaBelle Nature Park along the banks of the scenic Caloosahatchee River in LaBelle on Saturday, September 24 armed with tools, a mower and supplies ready to help with trail maintenance and to clean park benches.
In two hours the group successfully filled a trailer with debris removed from the trails, says Margaret England who helped organize the event.
