Perhaps the most important aspect of the parish's litter program in terms of long-range success is educating area youth on all the negative aspects brought forth by litter.
Research has shown that most children have learned their basic habits and practices by the end of their 4th grade in elementary school. With this in mind, the Police Jury has been working with the Calcasieu Parish School Board and other private schools and educational institutions in the region to develop a presence of litter awareness through such projects as visits from "Trashsquatch and Fetch" talks by our litter enforcement officer, litter coloring books and talking trash cans.
