Fun days at Dolores Park? Much better when it’s clean!

Dolores Park Works celebrated Earth Day on Sunday by cleaning the park. Volunteers and students from the Bureau of Jewish Education and the Girls Club from Edison Charter Academy met with the park’s gardeners at 9 a.m. to learn how to take care of the park.

Teacher Paula Ginsburg shared the story of One Simple Thing, an educational project that features public school students and encourages people to reduce their waste — starting with not grabbing too many napkins in cafes.

Check out photos of what the park looked like before the cleanup.
