Readers are Winners

Minute Maid apple juice. If you could read, it'd take you less than a minute to get the idea you should be a maid to yourself and not litter. In between the church and public library, north Henrico County.

After hanging out at the scenic overlook and enjoying the view of Saltview, Va., some dirty apes find it easy to overlook the fact that they failed to pack out their garbage.

The APVA and National Park Service do a very fine job of keeping the grounds at Jamestown clean. I noticed maybe 3 admissions stickers that fell off visitors . . . and this orange Tic Tac in between the slats on the boardwalk that crosses the wetlands. And that was it.

Far West

We went on vacation to the *ahem* far end of Virginia. Are there Dirty Apes there, you ask? You betcha!

From the chair lift at Natural Tunnel State Park, we could see that some croc-wearing tot got just what he deserved!

Son of a Bench

The Wetlands. Aside from the rampant leash law breaking, the place is quite clean and pleasant. We were hard-pressed to find major litter, but eventually some big ape chunks bubbled to the surface.

So what level dirt ape tosses the bench into the river? The young boys playing pirates or the big "adult" mooks that like to see the splash? Stupid apes either way.

This was rather baffling. Not close enough to the river to justify a downstream cruise, not close enough to the parking cul-de-sac to justify some monkey tossing the ruined spare into the swamp. Yep, you guessed it, either way, still a dirty dirty damned ape!

Great Backyard Trash Count

Last weekend, we joined the Richmond Audubon Society at Dutch Gap for the 12th Annual Great Backyard Bird Count. We counted a lot of great species of bird, the bald eagle for instance:

We also counted a lot of lousy species of damned dirty ape litter. Here are a few:

So all the bottles dumped in the river by monkey boaters, chimp fishers and all around ape jerks seemed to get collected here. No, monkeypoo, this is NOT nature's garbage strainer!

Some ape family bring their kids' plastic rideable oversized toy truck along for a litter tailgate party? Clean it up!

A little Volunteering does a lot of good

The title sounds corny, we know, but on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, a call to volunteer was asked. We took it more as an opportunity to clean up one of our many beautiful parks in the city. The one that was targeted for the event was the Slave Trail / Anncarrow's Landing Park. We arrived at 9am, ready to go. No one was there and we began to wonder. Then we saw this:

Some monkeyface leaving a diaper and shattered beer bottle for the fish?

So we started with a grocery bag, picking up in a spot, hoping others would show. They did! Almost immediately, about 40 volunteers all joined in picking up trash, trimming back trees and mulching the area. It was a great success!



With volunteering, a difference can be made. So get out there every so often and pick it up!
