    I loved this segment! I lived on a houseboat one summer on the Mississippi and this brought back great memories. We are cleaning up garbage on the river through Living Lands and Waters. Check out their website at If anyone is interested in volunteering to help keep this treasure clean please contact them. This is a great organization.
