1. What’s the Big Deal about Litter?! Marker
Inscription. Litter or trash thrown on our roadside or illegally dumped often ends up in a steam or creek. This threatens the critters that live there and it can threaten humans too!

Thankfully, litter is an easy problem to fix - If everyone does their part!!

Remember, candy wrappers or cigarette butts that are tossed in the gutter can eventually end up in our creeks, rivers lakes, and oceans. Harmful chemicals can pass from the litter into our water.

Join local clean up efforts! Become part of the renew Our Rivers campaign and help clean up Smith Lake
