Thank you to those of you who have reported back to us about your cleanup! We, at American Rivers, are overwhelmed by what has been accomplished this year. Nearly 95,000 volunteers (a more than 50% increase over 2006) have removed more than 600 tons of trash from more than 7,000 river miles. Visit Trash Talkin’, the National River Cleanup Week blog, for more of this year’s cleanup stats.
