The Kansas City Plogtober Cleanup is a great way to get outdoors and get some exercise while engaging in a socially responsible activity that beautifies the streamside trails in your community!
Trash that ends up on the ground (including discarded PPE from the pandemic) ends up in our water systems– polluting ecosystems and killing vital organisms!
