Annual Earth Day river clean up

Yesterday was a most beautiful day for a river clean up. If the few sites I managed to get to were an indicator of participation then we had a great turn out for it, too. The clean up is sponsored by Milwaukee Riverkeeper and there were many sites along all of our rivers. I stuck to the Milwaukee River. Started at Lincoln Park and made my way downstream to Caesar's Pool, although by the time I got to the end it was indeed the end and the volunteer staffers were heading off to the after party at Estabrook Park. Here are are few of my photos. More can be seen on Flickr.

  1. Most of the time I don’t make comments on websites, but I'd like to say that this article really forced me to do so. Really nice post!
