Chemicals may contaminate water and soil and leech into surrounding habitats and, for people who come to Everglades National Park to explore, fish, hike, bike and canoe, trash is not a welcome sighting. With this job, many hands can make a huge difference! Come out and create a pile of your own, one that will be hauled out of the Everglades.
