4A Wednesday, Oct. 13, 2010 Feather River Bulletin Groups clean up area's waterways When volunteers recently found an umbrella and a suitcase in the creek, they may have surmised that Mary Poppins dropped her belongings. This would have been a reasonable assump- tion until others discovered a Couple of bike pedals, an automobile transmission, a bag with animal parts, a dis- carded wetsuit and metal bedsprings. These are a few of the un- usual items that volunteers dragged out of the streams, lakes and rivers of the Upper Feather River Watershed Sept. 25 while participating in the Great Sierra River Clean-up. More than 170 vol- unteers came out to loca- tions in the watershed to spend three hours getting their feet wet, their hands dirty and a feeling of com- munity pride. Local water- bodies in Westwood, Chester, Greenville, Tay- lorsvilte, Quincy, Caribou, Graeagle and Portola have improved water and scenic quality with the removal of nearly 2,500 pounds of garbage. Local coordinator Gia Martynn, who works for Feather River Coordinated Resource Management, em- phasized the powerful re- sults of collective efforts.
