CleanScapes is excited to announce that volunteer Don Lysle, who has participated in hundreds of cleanups across the Commonwealth and dozens with CleanScapes, was one of those honored.

Nominations for volunteers were submitted by KPB affiliate organizations, including Clinton County CleanScapes.

“I’ve attended over 200 community cleanup events around the state and there is always a sense of accomplishment, a common purpose, and you’re surrounded by people who share a common interest in nature. But Clinton County CleanScapes events are unique. They’re my favorite because the people who show up are so diverse, yet they work together effortlessly. It’s so uplifting,” explained Lysle.

Lysle had also been named “Volunteer of the Year” by CleanScapes’ Advisory Board Members in 2011.

“CleanScapes was honored to nominate one of the most inspirational volunteers that we have had the pleasure to know and to work beside, Donald Lysle of Mechanicsburg, PA, for the 2018 Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful Outstanding Volunteer Award,” said Elisabeth Lynch McCoy, Clinton County CleanScapes Project Director.
