For my school service project, I picked up trash around the forest. I picked up trash at campsites and on the forest roads. I found a lot of things like beer cans, milk containers, soda bottles, food wrappings, and someone even threw away a broken camp chair. I pulled a lot of trash out of the river also. I filled four large bags in two hours!
The places where I picked up trash were in the national forest. Please do not litter because the forest is so beautiful. Don’t you want to keep the forest clean? When you come to the woods to camp or hike, don’t you want to see a clean forest, a clean river, healthy fish and beautiful flowers, not a trash dump?
Throw your trash away in trash cans. Trash your trash, not the forest!
