Posted by Spalding Hurst

July 18, 2007


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.

Gathering all of your accomplishments and getting the chance to speak with many of you about your cleanups has been the most rewarding part of this whole year for me – I feel so honored to be involved with your work through National River Cleanup Week! Trash Talkin’ has been created so that you can share your experiences both with one another and the rest of the country. As an extra incentive, after entering your story you’ll be automatically entered to win one of four high-performance Extrasport pfds.
