Brief description of the trash site

This access road to the Oxbow is used by fisherman,who use a several trails down to the Oxbow from the road. As well people dump trash and debris at the end of the road. Lots of poison ivy. Landowner attended the cleanup in 2015 and brought snacks and water bottles and were very enthusiastic about the volunteer help. They have offered to do prep work in trimming brush. Perhaps they would spray for poison ivy a couple of weeks before hand?
