Brief description of the trash site

This is a beautiful, forested dirt road along the Connecticut River just north of the Riverview Picnic Area and Pavilion. Roadside litter is common, especially at parking pullouts. Park at the First dirt pullout north of the locked gate for the Pavilion and walk through vegetation beside the road to find litter. Walk north until out of woods. Most debris is off the road on the left while walking north (upstream) toward the new Four Star Farm Brewery. IF you're a beer lover, schedule the work with the brewery opening time for after volunteering refreshments! (In 2021, they open at noon on Saturdays)

Type(s) of trash at the site

Litter, small household dumping, large & heavy corrugated pipe.
