Our rivers are such beautiful places and I hear it every day… “I wish our rivers were this clean” or ” I haven’t seen a piece of garbage since I got to here”. True, true, Montana is a pretty clean place and we would like to keep it that way!
Every day I pull into a boat ramp and look for some trash. It’s usually not hard to find, a beer can here, flip flop there or a piece of plastic somewhere in the bushes. But my least favorite thing to find right next to the river…. Cigarette butts! Put your cigarette butts in your pocket and take those nasty things home with ya!
It’s understandable to loose something and it ends up on the ground. But give some back and pick up some trash the next time your at the boat ramp. Montana will thank you and it will keep our rivers beautiful!
