Bill Andrews one of our regular volunteers picking up litter. Edisto has a lot of roads, sometimes you have to find a faster way to cover territory!
It couldn't happen without great volunteers willing to take their time on a beautiful spring day to clean up other people's trash. Why do they do it? They love their community and their island.
