Review for Clean Forest Project Inc, Grants Pass, OR, USA
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.
