'Do your duty': Ohio State Parks remind visitors to clean up with photos of trash left behind

When you leave the park, make sure you do your part to clean up.

This is a perfect weekend to head out to one of Ohio's beautiful state parks as the weather warms up and we continue to reopen from COVID-19.

However, when you leave the park, make sure you do your part to clean up. 

On Saturday, the Ohio State Parks posted a message on its Facebook page that included pictures of trash that had been left behind at some of its parks. 

"When visiting our state parks, don’t forget to carry out any trash you bring in," the message reads. "Trash cans are unsightly in a natural setting, and they can disrupt woodland ecosystems. Do your duty to keep our parks clean and safe for everyone to enjoy!"
