About 25 of us met to clean up the Vermillion River today. The local kids make a hobby of throwing trash off the cliffs and the bridge, so every year local paddlers go down there to clean it up. We took out 16 bicycles, 1 television, 1 mattress, 1 bench seat from a pickup truck, and a couple dozen bags full of miscellaneous trash. Thanks to Nora for bringing her raft along to use as a garbage barge (be sure to hit the link to her blog to see more pics), and big thanks to Bill for taking the pics. Also, props to Dennis and Dave for organizing everything and gathering supplies.
