Plogging Challenge

Give Back to Your Community, Get Some Exercise, Win Some Prizes!

Plogging is a fun activity that entails jogging or walking while making quick stops to pick up trash along the way.  This year's Dublin Pride Week will include a Plogging Challenge to raise awareness about storm water pollution and give residents the opportunity to take action by cleaning up litter from our neighborhoods, parks, trails, and streams.
