The Project Emerges and the Work Begins

During our exploration of an 11 mile stretch of the Saline Creek, we've discovered approximately 50 shopping carts wedged in log jams and incorporated into the banks .  The carts originate in Urbana and we assume are carried by high water and fast current down stream as far as 10 miles.  The map above shows the Saline from Urbana to St. Joseph and the locations of each shopping cart found along the route; each cart was marked with GPS and photographed; the portraits can be seen below. 

The work has presented itself and we have begun removing the above carts and returning them to their origin in Urbana and Champaign.
