While camping at Fry Lake July 31, Kasen Broderick, Jacob Hicks, Elli Broderick, Blake Rauser and Linden Hicks, who had been riding around the three campsites, saw a group of people leave.

They decided to ride down to where the campsites to see if they left any firewood. They came back asking for gloves and garbage bags as they were so disgusted with all the garbage that was left behind by adults. The kids picked up four garbage bags full of garbage because they were scared of losing their summer “home” and the wonderful memories they create.
