Last Thursday several people, among them OSFR members, chose a short section of the Santa Fe to pick up trash. In only about 100 yards, several large trash bags were filled with mostly beer cans and glass bottles. The area targeted was the large shoals a few hundred yards below the downriver border of Poe Springs park.
Trash dumping has always been a problem in our rivers, but in recent years the exponential growth of users, some of whom show inconsideration for others, has resulted in way too much trash going into the Santa Fe.
It is for this reason we appreciate those who care. Some of these people are Terry and Andy Phelan, Rhonda Thiaville, Darryl Steinhauser, Sharon Yeago (OSFR board member!) SandyHubbard and Al Clement . Thanks to all of you.
