Our floodplain cleanup has had a great start. Since November we pulled tires out of swampy areas, recycled several large bins of plastic and cans, and got some great tools to make the cleanup more efficient in the spring.
Winter started much sooner than we expected. In just the last few weeks we’ve been hit by an ice storm and several inches of fresh snow. Everything looks perfect, just in time for the holidays.
But this means that the rest of the river cleanup will have to wait until the snow goes away. We can’t wait to get back out there when the weather warms up!
We got our first donations for the cleanup project and spent two weekends picking up tires by the river. The dog never gets tired of river adventures!
Ryder loves splashing in rivers. Sadly, the river shores near our house are full of broken beer bottles, tires, syringes and other memories of summer nights. Thus, Ryder and I decided to clean up the river. We started a cleanup campaign to retrieve as much garbage as possible and properly dispose of it.
