Not bad for an idea from a few days before: a cleanup at Onemile Branch in Drexel Park during Azalea Festival.
Juan and Luisa from Colombia with the VSU English Language Institute waded into the stream, with Beatriz Potter holding the bucket and Tom Potter advising.
Sara Jay explained her WWALS water quality test kit.
Scotti Jay went after things in the creek.
Tom Potter waded under an azalea bush and came up with a catch.
Suwannee Riverkeeper John S. Quarterman forded the stream in sreach of trash.
Eric Bell wandered by and ended up with the most creative trash picking stick.
Here’s the before picture.
And here are the intrepid trash-picking crew with their haul.
There are more pictures on the WWALs website.
