The 2020 Brian Abbott Above and Beyond Award goes to the Swan Creek Limpieza Cleanup Group!
The dedication and impact of this community-lead group incredibly inspires us! These volunteers went Above and Beyond to remove 2.7 tons trash from Swan Creek despite the pandemic. A large portion of the trash was tires which make the stream toxic for salmon. Before this event, the tires had been piling up for years because they are very difficult to remove.
Hear from these incredible volunteers themselves in this video!
