Fish for Garbage provides opportunities for civic engagement and stewardship of waterways by hosting river cleanups, educating about the harmful effects of riparian trash as pollution, and demonstrating the need for healthy ecosystem services.
Promote Leave No Trace principles, especially when recreating near a waterway. Encouraging anglers to fill their net with garbage when walking out of a fishing destination. Generate awareness of riparian pollution and the harmful effects on water quality, wildlife and people.
“We can accomplish so much if we all fill our net with a little trash each time we leave a river.”
