This summer I went to Poland with my family for my cousin's wedding. After the three day wedding, my Polish relatives took us around and showed us Poland. One place we visited was the Hel Peninsula--this is located in northern Poland in the water's of the Baltic Sea. Along the boardwalk there were several posters that had pictures that showed the effects of people not taking care of land, water, and animals. Even though I can't read Polish, I got the point because 'apicture speaks a thousand words'. I thought my fellow River Stewards might also appreciate these pictures. And, maybe it might give us some ideas for something wecould do to promote taking care of the river and other assets that we have.
This fish was constructed out of garbage that was found in the water and they transformed it into an artistic statement.
