Do Your Part!

June 23, 2015

  

Last Friday, all of the national park staff picked-up trash along the road and harbor near the visitor center and headquarters. It’s part of our continued efforts to help keep American Samoa beautiful and to educate about the importance of putting trash in bins. Trash not only looks bad, but it also harms wildlife and coral reefs.

Before and after photos show our efforts to clean-up a stream. Do your part, wherever you live, to keep your special places trash free!
