Black River Action Team Weekend Cleanup Along The Black River In Cavendish
Posted: May 25, 2021
Warmer weather has enticed people to venture forth in search of scenic drives along and visits to the Black River. Unfortunately, this increased traffic often results in an increase in riverside and roadside trash, presenting not just an eyesore but an impairment to wildlife habitat. The Black River Action Team spent a few hours this past weekend cleaning up the pull-offs on Route 131 along the Black River in Cavendish. The trash collected ranged from political signs to tires, food trash to fishing line. While some appeared incidental, some was obviously intentionally discarded at these public sites.
