Wednesday, April 22, Earth Day, started the Bitter Root Water Forum's cleanup campaign this year for the Bitterroot River. In a video on the Water Forum's Facebook page, Grace said that reusable bags are available at the FWP Fishing Access Sites and at Bitterroot Brewing and Bob Wards Sporting Goods. She encouraged the public to take the bags and gather trash from the riverbanks or from any other natural area. Earth Day is 50 years old this year!

By the way, the Bitter Root Water Forum is part of the "Bitterroot Gives" internet donation days from 5 p.m. April 30 through 7 p.m. May 1st. On this Friday's KLYQ Event Show, we'll be talking more about the fundraiser that helps many local groups.
