Everybody likes to have a walk along with the parks of Ferndale and who knows, you may want to catch some fish there as well. Indeed, we are free to visit the riverside as long as the water level is not high and we can see that it is safe to spend some time. It is actually a good spot to meditate and relax because we can connect with nature as we breathe in the fresh air.
However, things may not always end up being a good setting to calm our minds because there are people who forget about their responsibility. Some of them may have left cans and bottles behind and this won’t do good to the environment, especially when thrown near the river. When the water level gets higher, those wastes will be found floating or deep down the ground, and because of this, the water will be polluted.
Can you imagine how many lives will be taken away because of that because there are small fishes and other living things in the river? Well, we cannot always monitor who has left the wastes so we should at least help and do something to prevent such pollution in the water. This is a concern that young generations of today must consider because they will be the ones who will look at this river in the future.
So we can join or organize clean-up events by asking help from the government or school officials in Ferndale for approval. The organizers can ask for skip bins where collected wastes from the river can be stored. They may even volunteer and extend help regarding this event by leaving skip bins around the area for visitors and passer-bys to use.
