365 Things To Do In Jackson Hole, WY: No. 2

By
Commercial Real Estate Agent with Contour Investment Properties

James Mathieu with a collector's item hubcapJoin Rotary in the Spring Cleanup!

The second Saturday in May each year is the annual Town Clean Up, sponsored by the lunch Rotary Club. Jackson Hole is covered in snow from November to April, and when it finally melts, the roadsides have accumulated a lot of litter. Who still throws garbage out of their cars anyway??

The Rotary Club sponsors a cleanup day every May. The day starts with coffee, juice and donuts on the Town Square, and then friends and businesses all set out for different areas of town and sections of the highway. Trash bags are donated, hundreds of people show up to participate. The work only takes 2-3 hours, and then everyone meets back at the Square for a huge free hamburger cookout, live music, and storytelling.

Everything is donated, so all you need is a good attitude and some work gloves.

Our best find today was a small bottle of nipple cream. How exactly do you lose a bottle of nipple cream on the side of a highway?

To find the best place to pick up trash, or to learn about the Jackson Hole commercial real estate market, call me!

Hi Kathryn, Wyoming is gorgeous, and that's why the community pitches in to clean up each year. We like it this way!

It is amazing what you can find cleaning up the side of the road.  I worked at a ski resort for several years - each year in the spring and fall we cleaned a section of freeway - always had a prize for the person who picked up the weirdest/gross items. Was always a great team building experience.

Mel & Gretchen: the only thing better would be if people wouldn't throw the trash out their windows in the first place.
