4 b) BRENT: I have been bothered by the trash I see accumulating on the trail. I was thinking that maybe we can start a local program called "Atlantic Highlands Clean Trails" or something. Have signs printed up that can be posted that read that when using the trail, take all your garbage and try to remove one additional piece every trip. I personally am doing this and if we can get even 5% of the people that use the trail to go along with it we may have something.
