NHAMCP Trash Patrol Series Finale
Pictured above ( l to r) are participants Ruth, Sue, Marion, Denise, Sheila, Ron, and Betsy.
Joining the group today was Founding Director Emeritus of the Nashua River Watershed Association and internationally recognized river advocate Marion Stoddart...
Shortly after we launched the skies brightened and cleared allowing this display of fall foliage ...
A riverside bench displayed the handiwork of a tidy litterbug...
After a leg stretch near the dam we re-launched and headed back to our starting point...
From the river and the adjacent shoreline we recovered 286 recyclable containers and 189 pieces of miscellaneous rubbish which included Styrofoam, plastic bags, bait tubs, a Bell helmet, 2 automobile tires, some water chestnut plants, and a temporarily disoriented crayfish who was returned to the river.
Hats off to Denise and the New Hampshire Appalachian Mountain Club Paddlers for their success with this project.

I think the trees put on an especially bright set of colors in honor of the fine clean up you all accomplished.
And I bet the crayfish was down right thrilled to be set home again.
