Volunteers from the Arnold Preservation Council (APC) helped tidy up the Baltimore Annapolis Trail on Saturday.
The volunteers began at Chesapeake Academy in Arnold and were divided into four teams to spread out their cleanup efforts north up to Jones Station Road.
Along the way, they found discarded tires along a ravine and bags of trash.
"Despite the threat of rain and low participation, we collected a lot of trash and 16 tires," said APC President Elizabeth Rosborg.
The APC meets monthly in various places around town. Their mission is to unite the community of Arnold, preserve its rural heritage, and enhance its environment by advocating responsible growth, linked neighborhoods, local businesses and excellent schools, according to a release.
