Scouts and Land Trust Cooperate on Earth Day


Over twenty people from the Land Trust and the Runnins River Watershed Alliance joined together April 23rd to clean up trash and litter at the Martin Refuge, Tower Hill, and other Land Trust properties in Seekonk. All in all, an amazing haul of 2 full truckloads of material was collected. It was a fine example of cooperation and many hands making a large imprint in the community.

Seekonk's annual Earth Day clean-ups took place on April 30th. Scout Troop 1 Seekonk volunteered to clean Seekonk Land Conservation Trust properties including The Cushing Conservation Area and four other properties along a mile-long stretch of road along Chestnut Street.
The group of nine scouts and several parents collected seventeen bags of trash, a tire, hubcaps, and a "lucky" white sandstone rabbit! The cleanup efforts enhance the beauty of this scenic area and also benefit the environment by improving wildlife habitat and protecting our natural resources from pollution. The Seekonk Land Trust thanks and commends Troop 1 for their outstanding job!
