BENTONVILLE, AR -- If you've noticed a cleaner hillside behind Bentonville Dog Park lately - you might have this family to thank.

Viewer Matt Long sent us these pictures and this story Monday:

"I've seen (this mess) there every day for 2 or 3 weeks... maybe longer. It looked like someone had scattered computer paper all over the woods. Nobody was doing anything about it, so it was time to take action.

"It ended up being 2' square pieces of 1/8" foam. We (Andi-k, Itali, Meric, and I) took 45 minutes out of our day to play in the woods and clean it all up.

"We decided to be the change we wished to see."
