The Soenen family spent part of April cleaning up and naming a creek in Marion! The family has removed HUNDREDS of pounds of litter from their neighborhood creek, which drains into Squaw Creek.  They have also asked the city council to name the creek Willowood, hoping that if the creek has a name, others will take better care of it. They have also used their time in the creek to have some outdoor science lessons. Way to go, Soenen family! When LCR talked to Brian this week, he said, "we are happy the warm weather is here, so we can do more!"
