Winter is an excellent time of year to participate in river cleanup. Vegetation in the water and foliage on the banks are at a minimum, making wrappers, cans, bottles, etc. easier to spot and dislodge. With increased recreation on waterways across the country, it seems inevitable that more garbage will accompany this increased usage. I honestly beleive that those of us who spend time enjoying the outdoors appreciate its value far too much to litter.
