Behold! On this huge desolate lot, there once was a house. Now that house is gone and a large amount of old and rusted furniture remains. And in the picture below MEVO volunteers are removing not the first, but the second refrigerator out of the lot. There’s even a washing machine in the whole mess.
Now consider this. Think of all the pollutant’s inside these appliances, made in the 1950s, which are going into our water, and ruining the atmosphere slowly, but steadily. And this can go…
We've been doing a ton of fishing instruction lately with Hyrum State Park. Not only did we help at the annual Dia de Playa at the beginning of the month at which 400 people came to learn and play outside, we hosted about 40 Latinos in Action high school students for a field trip about the basics of fishing and canoeing.

I went exploring around the park after work yesterday and discovered the forest floor was coming to life. Here's some wildflowers pictures I captured during my hike.…Continue
