I have not posted for Matt in a while, but believe me he has still been cleaning. Our other camera has died and he hasn't dared take mine yet. I plan to go with him this weekend. Last week we met a pair of conservationists, locals. They were at the dump themselves and Matt being the chatty person he is started up a conversation. Tony and Herschel offered Matt replacement tools for the ones recently stolen from his truck. They were acknowledging the work he puts in and were enthusiastic to help out in a way that they could. We followed them home and Matt walked back to the truck with 2 shovels and a rake, and a huge grin. He is planning to attend a meeting at their house sometime soon. He feels appreciated and has a new drive to continue his efforts. More before and after pictures to follow!
