It's been a couple years that attended the annual Refresh the Rims hosted by Billings Park and Rec and Montana State University-Billings as a part of the Outdoor Adventure Leadership Program. It's held on Saturday, October 19th, it was the 7th year it has been held, and the 3rd time I've participated. Every year we get to clean up an area of the Rims, which we visit frequently for hiking, walking, and riding. We meet new people and some that keep coming back.
Volunteer Check-in starts at 9:00a at the Billings Community/Senior Center, we get coffee, donuts, hot chocolate and muffins. After check-in, volunteers will be introduced to their team leader. The event begins at 9:30a with teams of volunteers fanning out throughout Swords Rimrock Park to clean up, remove graffiti and glass from the trails. Cleanup concludes around 11:30a, so it's an easy day with a big impact on our community.
