"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!"
- Pete Seeger, in YES! Magazine

Trash Pickup - Marshall Gold Discovery State Park

The project:
Pick up trash during a visit to Marshall Gold Discover State Park, the site of the gold discovery that led to the 1849 Gold Rush.


Why bother?
There were quite a few people here for the special holiday happenings. Even if California State Parks was operating at full power, which it isn't, it would have been tough for employees to keep up.

Worth it?
Sure. It's a simple way to help.
