West Greenwich Conservation Commision - Earth Day Clean-up Saturday April 21, 2011
Meeting location: 8:30 at the 6A Park & Ride. (Exit 6A off Rt 95 in RI)
The West Greenwich Conservation Commision puts this on every year. NEMBA (New England Mountain Bike Association) is a HUGE part of this clean-up. Some of us from SSW went to this clean-up last year with OSJ and NEXTERA. It is a HUGE undertaking going on out there. The organization running it does a very nice job. The 4x4s bring a new ability to go after things out in the woods that are not accessable by street vehicles. Last year we filled pick-up truck beds, ute trailers, and the back of Jeeps with Tires, construction debris, and garbage. We finished off with collecting an a large pile of Steel panels from deep in the woods. John brought the steel to a scrap yard and donated the procedes in the name of the 4x4 clubs to the West Greenwich Conservation Commision. We will be there with other 4x4 clubs again this year.
The clean-up runs from early morning till lunch time. A hot lunch is provided. After lunch, the NEMBA guys go out Mountain Biking. If anyone is into the Mountain Biking thing, there will be lots of people biking.
For anyone interested, We can go wheeling after lunch somewhere nearby.
