“If you’ve ever thought ‘Someone should do something about that litter problem’, remember, you’re someone.”

Joel Goldes has visited the creek in his suburban Southern California community nearly every day. And for the past 10 years, he’s been picking up litter, trapping invasive crayfish, opening blocked channels, and testifying at local hearings – often the lone voice in support of the under-appreciated ecosystem near his home.

Why does he do this? For him, the answer is simple: he has a responsibility to improve the world he lives in. But thousands of other residents pass this spot every day, never giving it a thought.

Keeper of the Creek reminds us that one committed person truly can make a difference.
