The re:TH!NK Youth Coalition is looking for your input about tobacco-free parks in Oshkosh! Parks are meant to be places where residents and families can go to relax, enjoy nature, and be active. The re:TH!NK Youth Coalition has picked up thousands of cigarette butts in Oshkosh parks over the past couple of years, and we think a tobacco-free parks ordinance will keep residents and the environment healthier. Let us know what you think by taking this short survey!
