Our Impact

  • Pounds of Trash Removed


  • Volunteers Involved


  • Students Educated


  • Trees Planted


The nonprofit Living Lands and Waters has collected 1.2 million pounds of tornado debris from shorelines since December. On Friday, they made one final pass through the Cambridge Shores area of Marshall County — except this time they were underwater.

The Neponset community is the recipient of 275 free oak trees again this year, thanks to the Living Lands and Waters Organization in East Moline, Illinois. Neponset has received trees for ten of the past twelve years.

Living Lands and Water is many things, but namely, the nonprofit says it's the only group doing "industrial strength" river clean-up in the world.
