This past Saturday, we had at least 5 Hacklebarney members show up to help clean the Rockaway River in Dover. While this wasnt officially our event, it was a success, because we cleaned up a great stretch of water.
Honestly, this stretch, by the park and public works area, was more beautiful than I would have imagined.
It makes it so hard to believe that there are so many knuckleheads throwing beer bottles, worm containers, and my personal favorite, soiled diapers on the banks.
From what others were saying, this area holds wild fish too. Maybe this could be a candidate for a stream restoration?
Thanks again to the Hacklebarney (and Ridge and Valley) members that got out, and got their hands dirty.
