I grabbed the camera yesterday afternoon, looking for the possibility of something interesting to picture at the park, when I noticed my pond clean-up work was far from over. So I grabbed some bags instead and picked up loads of litter along the pond. Just in one 50 yard stretch I hauled in over 40 plastic bottles. It was particularly disturbing to see a muskrat's home entrance on the banks of the pond practically blocked by loads of trash.
In observing the litter I'm increasingly in favor of a ban on polystyrene cups and take-out containers. It would also be good to see a 5 or 10 cent deposit on plastic bottles.
