This years Rogue river cleanup was a great success. The Curry Organizers took the Rogue river mouth while volunteers from the Lower Rogue Watershed, SOLV, the Trash Dogs and other kids and volunteers removed rubbish from the rest of the lower Rogue river via jet boat assistance. This year we had 17 boats, over 50 students and dozens of adult volunteers who collected 20 cubic yards of trash and numerous tires from gravel bars and along roads of the lower Rogue river.
We also helped to feed 100 hungry trash collectors at a BBQ at Quosatana Campground. This is a classic example of community effort that is changing the way kids and the town thinks about our river, trash and stewardship of our natural resources. It really is every ones responsibility to help clean up our planet.
Thank you to Maggie and the Lower Rogue Watershed Council and to all the volunteers for your time and support, see ya next time!
