Muskingum River Sweep

On June 16, 2018 FLMR hosted a Muskingum River Sweep on our Land Trust property at Devol’s Dam.

Twelve volunteers gathered 25 large garbage bags of trash from three major piles of debris along the Muskingum River from 9AM-12PM.

Afterwards, volunteers enjoyed pizza donated by Smitty’s Pizza located on Front Street in Marietta Ohio.

Recyclable materials were taken to the Marietta Area Recycling Center.

It was heartwarming to witness so many people involved in an event that has such a major impact on our local environment and beyond. The human impact that garbage is creating is insurmountable and enough to overwhelm anyone, but the display of care for the environment I saw this weekend makes me feel that it’s possible for humanity to overcome this problem.

We took small steps towards a solution to the problem this weekend but we still made a difference and that is something that all the volunteers who partook in the river sweep should take pride in.
