Richardson got a needed sprucing up last weekend thanks to teens and adults who volunteered their time picking up trash.

On Saturday, more than 25 members of the Lake Highlands High School National Honor Society worked along Huffhines Creek between Belt Line Road and Plano Road, and members of the Dallas Bar Association worked in a section of Heights Park, especially the bed of Cottonwood Creek, where numerous plastic bags and snack wrappers were found.

Yale Park was beautified Sunday, when teen girls from Richardson’s Muslim Children of North America picked up trash there.
