Local Man Takes on Trash, Inspires Others
“Hey, Cowboy, can you help me build fence?” So began a longtime friendship between local resident Michael Blair and one of the founding members of Spring Creek Coalition, Jennifer Owen. Jennifer needed help with fencing along her Spring Creek property and she reached out to Michael. He soon developed an admiration for Jennifer, “her integrity and her push”, as he put it.
“I went to some of the SCC seminars and I saw what the creek meant to the Coalition and to this lady,” says Michael, pointing at Jennifer.
Through his friendship with Jennifer, and love of the creek, Michael helps SCC maintain the trash barrel we sponsor at Cave Springs each summer and picks up garbage along the road.
“I just love it when I pass over the creek at Cave Springs and there’s Michael, picking up cans and inspiring those around him to do the same,” says Jennifer, who volunteered to oversee the barrel this summer. “It does set an example. They see me; they see Michael; and they start to understand.”
“I love this creek," says Michael. "I like to come down in the morning and watch that heron take off. It’s a privilege to be here.”"
It’s a privilege to have you, too, Michael. The Spring Creek Coalition board sincerely thanks you and Jennifer. Through annual creek clean-ups and help with trash barrels from people like you, SCC has removed tons of garbage from the Spring Creek watershed over the past 20 years.
This year's clean-up is at King's Curve, Saturday, November 7, 10am-noon. Save the date! We'll give details and directions in a few weeks.
