It has been pretty much a constant presence in my thought stream for ALL these years. I promised myself I would go back every summer after that one in 1995. So, what happened?

Please check out this fine organization- Let’s Do It: Save Baikal!-working to clean up all the garbage at Lake Baikal. In addition to cleaning up all the discarded trash at the most beautiful place in the world, they are working hard to create and establish systems to deal with all the garbage long term. This makes sense of course, because there will always be trash and it will always need to be dealt with in the best possible way. Smart solutions from smart people.

In the meantime, go to their website and support them- they are making a difference!
