Then last month I met Leslie Engler at Refuge Cove State Recreation Site and found out that one person is making a difference. When I first saw her stopping to put things in a bag I assumed she was looking for seashells but was surprised to learn that she was actually picking up pieces of glass. What's more, she said that she does it every day while walking her dog there. Besides the glass being an eyesore, it would be very easy for a child or a pet to cut themselves on it while running around, so her efforts may have helped lots of people without them even realizing it.
Thank you, Leslie, for making
Ketchikan a better place and for inspiring me to start picking
up the trash too.
