Brief description of the trash site

A short walk up the river bank from the Old Ferry Road boat launch and adjacent to a corn/hay field is a section of the steep and eroded bank where three cars (60's vintage) are held to the bank by a few trees and branches. This is not a new dump, but is hard to see from the river channel due to overhanging trees and heavy decomposition.

Type(s) of trash at the site

3 old cars
