This weekend the group I'm a member of, Prairie State Canoeists, did a cleanup of the Kishwaukee River. We basically go out in our Kayaks or Canoes and float around with little grabbers pulling up anything we can get our hands on. In the end, we pulled out almost an entire dumpster of garbage! It was really fun, and if anyone is in the Northern Illinois Area, checkout the group! http://www.prairiestatecanoeists.org/
Here's a few shots of all the junk pulled from the water.
A few shots of this awesome river, hopefully a little cleaner...
And one shot of my XTerra loaded up ready to go home.
