"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"

Trash Pickup - American River Parkway

The project:
Pick up trash during a walk in the American River Parkway, Greater Sacramento, California.

A few minutes here and there as we hiked for a few hours.

Why bother?
The trash was there, and so were we.

Worth it?
This 23-mile park preserve along the American River in the Sacramento area is a great natural resource. If city planners did NOTHING else right, THIS was a great move. There are more than 100 miles of hiking and biking trails, and loads of natural area to explore. It's a resource well worth keeping free of trash.
