It is accessible from the shore, but some of the trash is in the river and requires working in the water. The location is a short walk from the parking lot at the American Legion Post on St Kolbe Avenue in Holyoke. This spot has been used by the Log Pond Cove water chestnut volunteers / staff to put in their canoes.
