Clean The Bay Day

I was glad to join some other local paddlers this morning to help pick up trash on and around our local reservoir as part of “Clean The Bay Day.”  Our South Rivanna Reservoir, fed by the Mechums River, is part of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed, and this morning we had cleanup volunteers on both water and land.

We pulled out bottles, foam containers, fishing line and a few lures but overall were quite pleased at the low amount of litter on our reservoir.

It was a nice change of pace and it was great to see fellow paddlers show up to help pick up trash.
