Volunteers, students, and artists participated in a Convert-A-Can park beautification projects we presented with the U.S. Forest Service in the San Gabriel Mountains.

For the event, trash dumpsters in the West Fork trail/picnic area in the San Gabriel Mountains were transformed into functional art installations in an effort to help clean up the West Fork Trail, the picnic area, and the river. Nearly a year ago, the USFS trash receptacles along the East Fork of the river were painted to encourage proper trash disposal and prevent graffiti.

Leading the day’s hand-on action: Leadership Academy graduates Emely Garcia and Megan Devine.
