It’s time to clean up our world

September 1, 2012
By KATIE FINCH , The Times Observer

With gloves and old clothes, I arrived with others around 8:00 am at Larimer Park in Russell, PA. We fuelled ourselves with donuts and coffee and met our teammates and prepared our gear. Despite the rain, we headed out to several starting points along the Conewango Creek, climbed into our canoes and paddled downstream to start the search. Birds called, fish jumped and turtles warming themselves in the morning sun splashed back into the water. The creatures were noticed but overlooked in search of a higher priority. And then we spotted the shiny blue among some sticks and headed directly towards it. A beer can among floating sticks! There was a plastic soda bottle filled with what I hope was Mountain Dew. "Is that a tire or a log?" my canoeing partner asked.
