Libertarians cleaning Ohio & California parks

Libertarians plan to clean-up Hopewell National Park as government shutdown continues | WSYX TV6 Columbus - Geoffrey Redick:

January 8, 2019 - "Kryssi Wichers' car is covered with Libertarian Party stickers, and she ran as a Libertarian candidate.... On Saturday, her political party will host a 'National Park Clean Up' event, ... part of a larger statewide effort being sponsored by the Libertarian Party.... Libertarians are cleaning up the parks, since national park rangers are on furlough during the 17 day-long government shutdown....

"Wichers says trash bags, bottled water and potentially snacks will be provided during the clean-up. The 'National Park Clean Up' event will be held from 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. Saturday at Hopewell Culture National Historical Park on Route 104 just north of Chillicothe. Anyone is welcome to attend, and participants do not have to be a member or supporter of the Libertarian Party to pitch in."

Libertarian Party organizes Yosemite cleanup | Local | - Julissa Savala, Hanford Sentinel:

January 9, 2019 - "Reports of trash piling up and human feces littering the state’s most beautiful national parkland [are] why the Libertarian Party of Kings County is taking measures into its own hands.... [M]embers are organizing trash pick-up days at national parks in Central California and are asking for help from every community member willing to do what the government can’t during a shutdown....

"Kalish Morrow, chair of Libertarian Party of Kings County, said [that] since the government shutdown began on Dec. 22, some Libertarian groups around the nation ... have volunteered to help pitch in with cleaning up, such as around the National Mall in Washington, D.C., and Lake Mead in Nevada.... Due to the shutdown, funding for national parks ... has been slashed, leaving them with little to no restroom facilities and essential custodial services. Visitors have flooded the parks, taking advantage of free entry...

"The Libertarian Party of Kings County will be at Yosemite National Park on Sunday, Jan. 13, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. for a cleanup effort. Members and others who are interested will meet in Hanford that morning and caravan up to the park."
