Trashpedalling on the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail

Mrs. Trashpaddler and I did a little bike riding on the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail in Chelmsford this afternoon.  The collection of mostly plastic trash (pictured at left) was recovered along the way.

There were 20 pieces in all, 14 of which were recyclable containers and 6 were food wrapping rubbish.  YTD total 4292.

Here is a picture from yesterday's Sudbury River paddle...
Didn't include it yesterday due to uncertainty as to flower identification.  I'm told it is hibiscus and there were several such plants along the Wayland stretch of river.

If I saw the structure on the culvert here, I would know it was there to keep the culvert from being blocked by beavers...

PenobscotPaddles, You're probably correct. It will take maintaining to keep the screening from clogging with vegetative material.

BTW, I enjoyed your "Out to Baker Island" post. Fantastic scenery!
