Amazing Tenacity

The following series of photos gives you an idea of the effort that it takes to remove some of the trash from our rivers.  At the heads of islands in these rivers you will often find a bulwark of downed trees that look alot like a large pile of “pixie sticks”.  They catch all kinds of things!  Our crew was DETERMINED not to leave this very large piece of trash that was entrenched in one such pile of trees.  There are some videos too…showing the sheer joy of our group once the item has been removed…enough said.
