Today, we started cleaning up the Oxbow. The scouts were magnificent and really got stuck into hunting out old tires and rubbish. I was horrified at the amount of junk that was hidden in the bushes.
We cut down the wires dangling from the power cables, and removed some brush and invasive vegetation along the shoreline. A wood-chipper was kindly donated to us for the weekend by DJM Equipment and so we’ve been able to mulch a huge amount of logs and brush. So, if you’re looking for rental equipment, please consider DJM on Rte 31.
Tomorrow, we start to cut down the Ragweed and Knotweed.
It was great to see some teenage boys using the clearing we’d made to go fishing. Many more access points now available along the canal shoreline.
A special thanks to our sponsors.
