Neglected, Forgotten, Reborn.

The 2012 season has started. On April 14, the TMRWC helped out at the City of Attleboro's Annual Cleanup. Several people showed up and we made some new friends. I hope we can join next year too. We had a table set up with information. A whole bunch of trash was pulled from the river.
The next week was Earth Day Weekend, and we were at Hunt's Mills in East Providence. We counted fish at the new fish ladder (or under it) and then we had a walking cleanup in the woods. I always love when people actually want to clean. We weren't able to get all of the trash out, but we made a huge dent. We finished the walk by taking the newly made Overlook Trail to the view point over the river.
May 5, was the sixth annual Daggett Cleanup. This is one of our success stories. When we arrived, we realized that we had a good problem. There wasn't much trash. Still, we were able to stay busy for a few hours. The only big items were a shopping cart and a tire. I didn't think we would ever really see the improvment when we first started this cleanup. Take a walk and see for yourself.
I'm looking forward to some just for fun events now. We have some paddles and some hikes before getting back to the working events. Good start so far, let's keep it going!
