We'll be paddling on the Merrimack River collecting trash as we go. Spend a great day out on the water and do a good deed at the same time. We’ll be sorting the trash for recycling at the end of the paddle. This is an up and back paddle.
We will be having a BBQ after the paddle as a thank you to all volunteers! Hamburgers, hotdogs or grilled portabella mushroom caps for the vegetarians in the group, chips, potato salad, and watermellon for dessert.
PLEASE SUPPLY ME WITH A CELL PHONE NUMBER I CAN CALL IF THINGS CHANGE. MINE IS[masked]
From Route 3, take Exit 35E (Route 113). Go over the Tyngsboro Bridge and take a left onto Frost Road (Route 3A). Entrance to the park (site of an old campground) is on the left in about 1000 yards across from Patricia Drive. (See yellow flag below) It’s a rather steep down hill drive very close to a private residence so please be respectful.
What to Bring:
Boat, paddle, and life jacket (which you must wear)
Water – plenty of it
Sunscreen and hat, Bug repellent
Chair for the BBQ and beverages if you want more than water. (No alcoholic beverages are allowed in the park)
I will provide milk crates, dry bags, gloves, tie downs, grabbers, hand sanitizer, etc. for the actual collecting of the trash. Feel free to bring your favorite tools.
You MUST register for this trip by either calling or emailing or RSVPing to this notice
