Clean Forest Project is a worth while volunteer project focusing on the clean up illegal dump sites in the Josephine, Douglas, Jackson, Klamath and surrounding counties for the aspect of sharing in nature the belief in giving back to nature what has been disrespected by illegal dumping, RESPECT. It is quite enjoyable to give back to nature by giving a little time and effort of oneself through the ties and bonds of members that believe as you do in conservation and respect of our public and private lands.

At one of these such events, I realized the need for this worthy organization's growth to be funded by hard work ethics and contributions made by local community members surrounding these areas. Anderson Butte Clean Up Project entailed many CFP members coming together early one Saturday morning to share in cleaning up an illegal dump site in the mountains on the outskirts of Medford Oregon. I was amazed at the turn out of so many people that felt as I had my entire life about illegal dumping in our beautiful forest lands. Many came with trucks and used their own gas to take dump site materials to land fills and recycling places in the local area where they should of gone in the first place. It was amazing to see how little time it took for so many members to clean up such a large dump site as the one I had seen upon my arrival that morning. It is through the efforts of Clean Forest Project's staff that these events are organized to such a perfection. They deserve to be funded, respected and honored for their hard work and commitments to making a difference in the world we all share.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

In my interests to do more for our community by seeing a need for and planning more cleans ups in the future.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Organize more community based clean ups in and around the rivers, streams, lakes and wetlands of our community. I'd like for another clean up to be organized, from Baker Park to Schroeder Park off Willow Lane in Grants Pass. Along this stretch of the Rogue it is very littered with fast food containers, plastic bags, pop and beer cans from the parks along the river's edge that end up filling our ocean and bombarding, with life threatening consequences, the innocent inhabitants.

I have lived in rural areas all my life and have seen trash continually dumped in the forests. This is very frustrating to see and I am so thankful for organizations like CFP that clean these areas up so we can enjoy nature without the trash. I think this is an important service to keep our environment clean and SAFE from health hazards and unsightly trash. Thanks to all the workers and volunteers of CFP!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The clearing of trails by staff and volunteers during the summer of 2010. The trails by Taylor Creek were expanded and cleared making it possible to enjoy the hiking trails.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

None. I would like to see them get more funding to clean more forest areas and improve the environment. It is so nice to have areas in the forest to go and ENJOY.

Clean Forest Project does an amazing job to bring communities together to fight the epidemic of illegal dumping that affects not only the environment, but is hazardous to wildlife as well. Not only have they cleaned up over 460,000 pounds of garbage from Oregon and Northern California forests in the last 3 years, they have also reached thousands of kids with their comprehensive education program. A very worth-while cause, indeed!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my community as well as in neighboring communities.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

CFP is currently only in Oregon and Northern California. I hope that they will expand nationwide, as the problem of illegal dumping is everywhere...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

How every community embraces them, and wants to be a part of what they're doing.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Friendly, knowledgeable, professional, and passionate about their cause.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Make a dent in the pacific trash vortex by cleaning the streams and rivers that collect trash and dump it in the ocean.

Ways to make it better...

Could not have been better.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Getting funding to continue their mission

One thing I'd also say is that...

I learned about the Clean Forest Project from my mom. She has been helping them clean up Southern Oregon for the last year. I decided to join her in a project up at Anderson Butte, and was plesantly suprised at what a wonderful group of people that I met. They all showed up on a Saturday to help clean up our forest, and support this cause. With all the volunteers we had it only took about 90 minutes to clean up 3500 pounds of trash. It was a great experience, and I definitely plan on continuing to contribute to this great cause.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

great because it shows it takes volunteers of all ages who want to make a diffence in our planet and our society. It showed me that there are people who really care about our future
