Blair Crew had a great clean up on a beautiful Saturday on Northwest Branch/Rachel Carson trail. The team hauled out several rubber tires; excavated playground equipment; unearthed a metal couch frame and locker and LOTS of plastic.
Thanks to the group who turned out on Saturday: Rowers Aidan, Aidan, Ajay, Ben, Chris, Clayton, Esther, Leah, Martha, Meggie, Michelle, Nick, Nico, and Pierre and Parents Greg, Majolaine, Rebecca (and friend), Stephanie, and Tom. Valiant trash retrieval efforts were made by those both with and without waders! Special thanks also to Anne Spielberg who organized the effort for Blair Crew and James Graham at Neighbors of the Northwest Branch who organized the clean-up, provided all the equipment, and was there from beginning to end.
It’s that time of year again to help your friends and relatives make their holidays festive with the Blair Crew Big Red Bowed wreath. Our wreaths are fresh and evergreen and look great on railings, windows and doors. See the fundraising page for more details.
