"The most important point I learned about the environment while participating in the stream cleanup was that people don't know what they are doing when they littler.  They throw stuff in the streets and it goes in the drains and then the trash goes into the streams.  If people could see what they are doing, maybe they won't litter anymore." -Jebreel Field
