ADOPT A SPOT IN BURNHAM PARK
In 2020, the BPA organized an Adopt a Spot clean up program through October in Burnham Park in collaboration with Morristown's Clean Communities. We set up a schedule with volunteers selecting weekly slots through October for cleaning up litter in the Park.
For health safety reasons, we asked that volunteers supply their own masks, gloves, garbage bags and pick-up tools; separate out recyclables where possible; and place trash and recyclables in designated receptacles located in the Park.
Thank you to everyone who participated. We will schedule this program again in the spring of 2021.
BURNHAM PARK SCAVENGER HUNT
In the spring of 2021, we will resume this community building (while social distancing) activity that was founded last summer. We will be asking for new photos and putting together a new list of landmarks this spring.
As you walk in our parks, on our trails, and on our quiet streets during the pandemic, why not make a game out of it and join the Burnham Park Neighborhood Scavenger Hunt!
Send us a photo of something in your yard that can be seen from the street. Feel free to be creative! And stroll through the neighborhood looking for these landmarks your neighbors have shared. We add photos on an ongoing basis, so be sure to recheck this link whenever you go for a walk.
