PENSACOLA—The Scenic Highway Foundation is teaming up with students at Creative Learning Academy (CLA) to create one-of-a-kind art projects on two trash receptacles at Chimney Park (Scenic Highway at Langley Avenue).

Currently there are just two trash receptacles in the park itself and the area has been plagued by lots of trash and litter. The Scenic Highway Foundation, along with Ocean Hour and local volunteers, has a monthly trash clean up at both Bay Bluffs and Chimney Park. Volunteering for this one-hour service is encouraged.

The art project is just one of a series of projects that the Scenic Highway Foundation is implementing at Chimney Park. Back in October, several members of the Six Rivers Cooperative Invasive Species Management Areas removed invasive species on the site. Another removal event is planned for 2018. Eventually the SHF hopes to create a clear view of Escambia Bay from the park with the removal of the Common Reed and other tall plants that now obscure what is a panoramic view from the bay shore.
