In the aftermath of the Morris Fire and the still on-going Station Fire, an opportunity to collect, bag, and haul large amounts of accumulated garbage out of the San Gabriel River along the East Fork of the Angeles National Forest.
People who live in Southern California and have traveled up Highway 39 to the East Fork road to play in the water during the heat of the Summer will have noticed the unbelievable amounts of litter and heaps of garbage down in the river. Many families might also have been subjected to violence and threats by people illegally living and mining along the river and were drive back to their vehicles out of fear.
With the Forest closed, the USFS, fire fighters, and volunteers have been afforded the opportunity to go in to that section of the river safely to collect, bag, and haul a mountain of garbage in an effort to restore the East Fork and the San Gabriel River to a healthy and safe environment suitable for families once again.
On Saturday the clean-up effort was begun with average every-day citizens volunteering their time and sweat working to re-establish the region for every-day recreation.
The URL provided offers a description of the clean-up effort along with some photographs.
