How did it go?

My daughter age nine and myself have participated in the Rivers Alive clean-up for the past five years. Each year we hope to be recognized for our efforts. We were extremely motivated by Wangari Maathai's story of the hummingbird. Our goal was to win one of the prizes awarded that day. We scouted the river banks in our kayak the night before and flagged several dumps along banks of the Chattahooche River. Next morning we set to work to see how much of it we could retrieve in four hours. more
