Established as The Skamokawa Eagle in 1891

Refuge teeming with litter

To The Eagle:

As I'm driving on my way to Long Beach, I near the Wildlife Refuge.

Since I'm getting bored with all the scenery, I turn on my blinker and enter. As I wind through the tall grass and trees, I notice all the trash lying around. Then I scan my car and notice all the garbage I need to throw away.

"Hmm..." I grab a crumpled McDonalds bag, look around outside then chuck it out the window. "Haha! That felt great."

I pass some kids sitting around a fire pit on the beach, one of them carelessly tosses a pop can over his shoulder.

"Well, it's not like we're going to be able to save this planet anyways, the way we've polluted it, so I might as well join the bandwagon." I continue driving around, chucking my trash out of the window until my car is clean, and then head for the highway.

"What a serene drive." As I'm leaving, I spot a deer munching on a brown paper sack. "Haha, Wildlife Refuge, more like world's biggest trash bin!"
