Tire Trash Treasure Phenomenon
This year, Iowa Project AWARE covered the West Fork of the Des Moines River for its annual volunteer clean up event July 10th through the 15th. An average of 200 volunteers paddled the river and hauled out trash for just over four days. Guest blogger, and Trash Warrior, Laura Semken documented the event and shares her daily account of the clean up. She shares the smiling faces and power of people coming together united in a purpose to help clean up Iowa's environment.
