Paul Twedt, left, and Michael Anderson are paddling over 1,200 miles as Adventure Stewards to promote a "leave a positive trace" ethic in the outdoors. They have paddled the Namekagon and St. Croix Rivers to the confluence with the Mississippi River, and now are completing the Minnesota River, before taking on the Mississippi River in Minnesota. They are picking up garbage along the way, about 100 pounds per day on average.

William Clark's 9th generation descendants Robert, 8, and his sister Greta, 4, Holton, of St. Louis, are shown in a 36-foot canoe Friday, Sept. 23, 2011, in Long Beach, Wash. Back in 1806, explorers Meriwether Lewis and William Clark stole a canoe from native Americans living on the Pacific Coast. More than 200 years later, Clark's descendants are making amends to the Indian's descendants by having a 36-foot replica built for them. (AP Photo/Rick Bowmer)
