    We went to Great Falls on Monday and even though I have lived here for a while I have never been.  I brought a couple of bags just in case there was trash to clean up and was surprised to find that there was actually quite a bit.  Most of it was recent however we found a really old coke can that had washed up on shore which was interesting.  I also found it ridiculous that people would pick up their dogs poop but then leave the bag next to the path.

    • Morgan, it's great you brought bags to pick up trash. You left the natural area better than you found it, and that is important! Keep it up!

    I carpooled with friend to get dinner this week! I would definitely love to car pool all the time its a lot more fun to have a buddy in the car while driving.

    I wish I could walk to more places around my house because there are so many restaurants and grocery stores in such a short distance however, there are no sidewalks in my neighborhood and no walking space.  There is always a good amount of traffic so it makes me nervous walking on the road.  It would be really awesome if the city would build a path running the length of the road I live off of so that the shops and restaurants would be much more accessible to people who might be willing to walk instead of drive.

    I carry a reusable water bottle with me pretty much everywhere I go in order to avoid having to by plastic bottles.  The water bottle refill stations on the GMU campus have definitely made this much easier and I love seeing the counter go up on how many bottle were reused!

    I watched National Parks Adventure on Netflix, which explores National Parks and the people who help to take care of them.  I think it would be really interesting to work in National Parks across the country in order to help maintain them.
