Les Winkeler and Glenn Poshard are tired of seeing trash along the roads and in the natural areas of Southern Illinois.

“Try driving one mile (in Southern Illinois) without seeing trash. You can’t do it,” Winkeler said at news conference Tuesday at Veterans Airport in Marion.

Winkeler, outdoors writer and retired sports editor for The Southern Illinoisan, and Poshard, former congressman and ex-president of the SIU system, joined forces Tuesday to announce the start of a new initiative to clean up Southern Illinois and keep it clean.

The initiative is called Clean SOIL.
