The Original Volunteer Vacation

The Trash Tracker is used in conjunction with Glen Canyon National Recreation Area's Water Quality Program to keep Lake Powell pure. In past years, canyons and beaches have closed due to excessive human waste, but now Lake Powell can be considered one of the cleanest lakes on the country.
