Wells River Cleanup
Six Ledyardites headed out to the Wells on Tuesday to attempt to clean up the areas along the put-in and take-out. Despite limited time and last-minute notice, the outing was a success! Trash was removed and rivers were conserved. Among some of the more substantial items found was an old television that had been lying broken along the bank for some time. After carefully bagging the broken glass, Alex and Dave hauled it up and out to the truck bed. There was also a significant amount of scrap metal buried in the ground, so beware if you plan on walking around barefoot.
While scouting the river, we found a new downed tree upriver of the one that is currently blocking Tantric. Both still need to be removed. See Jesse Harris for more info.

Great work - and an example for all. Back in the 60s things were much worse as there were still many old car dumps, wrecks in abandoned farms, etc. Dan D. '64 (Ledyard Canoe Club Life member)

Low-runoff landscaping is good for the bay. Furthermore, native grasses and other plants don't need as much watering or fertilization as non-native ones do. By utilizing Bay-friendly landscaping on public property close to your house, you can consider involving and educating your neighborhood.
