Urban forests used for dumping

All of this garbage was gathered up on the weekend by a local Hamilton geocaching group, all just from that tiny bit of forest and field that you see in one of the shots.

This is what happens when no one is in charge of the urban forest – it becomes a waste place – and unfortunately there are many places in the city like this. If Hamilton had an urban forest management plan we could support and set up local stewardship groups as we have in Oakville – to keep an eye on these areas, clean them up, care for them etc.
