Along with observing the wildlife in the area and testing the water we do stream clean-ups. Many of these areas are in
desperate need of being cleaned up. People many times don't really see the importance of keeping these areas clean and carelessly
litter. Sometimes people even go as far as dropping off tires and other larger items. This pollution is harmful and deadly
to the stream and the wildlife in and around it.
When we cleaned up Hannah Park we all got into the water with trash bags and searched the banks and in the water for
trash. I didn't find much trash other than a few wrappers, paper cups, and some softballs. A few others found tires, a large
traffic cone, and some large steel rods.
It's very important for everyone to remember not to litter and to see the importance of every habitat. Everything in
this world of ours is connected and one little upset in this connection could be tragic. As dramatic as that sounds it's the
simple truth, and everyone needs to open there eyes to see it. So the next time you see trash don't over look it...pick it
up...you'll be glad you did.
