All Community Members Invited to Leave Only Footprints

Jackson, WY (September 26, 2014) – SHIFT organizers announced the second annual mySHIFT, a day of cleanup around Teton County.

mySHIFT, which will take place on Saturday, Oct. 11, from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m., is being presented by High Country Linen Service, the Jackson, WY, provider of services and products for hotels and motels, restaurants, and parties. It will occur in conjunction with the festival’s debut.

“mySHIFT is for you, Jackson,” said Mark Barron, owner of High Country Linen and Mayor of Jackson. “It will benefit our community and honor our ecosystem.”

“Last year, we were able to remove two truck loads of garbage from our National Forest and town streets,” said Mr. Barron. “Come out again this year to help clean up before the snow falls.”

Teton County non-profit organizations and businesses including Friends of Pathways, Bridger-Teton National Forest, Snow King Mountain, Teton County Parks and Recreation, Teton County Conservation District, Snake River Fund, and Rendezvous River Sports will partner with local residents on numerous clean-up projects.

Projects include clean-ups at Snow King Mountain, Flat Creek Corridor, Emily’s Pond, Garaman Pathway, Von Gontard Pathway, Curtis Canyon and the Wilson Boat Ramp.

More information on this year’s mySHIFT cleanup may be found here.

Community members are invited to meet at Town Square at 9 a.m. for Snake River Roasting coffee and Pearl Street Bagels before heading out on their chosen project.

“mySHIFT is an active extension of SHIFT’s mission: to encourage communities like ours to take care of the environment upon which their economies depend,” said Christian Beckwith, SHIFT’s director. “We commend Mr. Barron and High Country Linen for their vision and support.”

Mr. Barron welcomes participation from any businesses, non-profits and residents. “All community members are welcome,” he says. “We encourage everyone who lives here to leave only footprints.”
