For people visiting the Pembina River!!
Dear Pembina River Tourists,
For years our little town of 600-1000 people has been over crowded for the summer months. Yes it is definitely annoying that is locals can’t get anywhere near the river most days but what really makes us mad is the fact you come to our HOME and do not take care of it. Yes it is very scenic, yes tubing on the river can be enjoyable, however it’s totally unacceptable to litter EVERYWHERE!
I drive the river valley to work every single day and it makes me sick seeing beer cans, deflated tubes, food wrappers, diapers, among many other things littered, not only on the side of the road but on the beaches and IN the river as well. I can’t count on one hand how many times I or someone I know has been cut by broken bottles in the river. Not to mention the only people I ever seeing picking up left over garbage is the locals.
So seriously grow up and clean up after yourselves or don’t visit the river. That goes for all parks, if you can’t take care of them you shouldn’t be at them.
