Halfway to Earth Day in Tewksbury-10/21/2017

Seven members and friends of the SRWA participated in Half-way to Earth Day on 10/21. While some worked the banks of the Shawsheen both up and downstream behind the Knights of Columbus on Route 38, others paddled downstream to collect bobbing bottles, plastic cups, cans, grocery shopping bags, mylar balloons, and… a blender! The land crew removed submerged lawn chairs, oil filters, a fire-extinguisher, building materials and a whole lot more of bottles, cans, general debris, and a tire. We collected 3 bags of recycling materials and 6 bags of trash. Amongst the debris were cans with expiration dates of 1998 and 2002. A return trip will be scheduled in the spring!
