On Saturday, April 30th, members of the town of Manchester as well as students, parents, and staff from Odyssey met to help clean up a stretch of Bigelow Brook, behind the Parkade Cinemas. We generated several large piles of trash bags and assorted odd items (a kitchen table!) as well as a tame ferret, which was promptly bundled off to the Bolton Veterinary Hospital for evaluation and placement.

Each succeeding year we have produced fewer piles of trash - an excellent sign of the cumulative effect of our annual clean ups and an indicator that we may be able to direct our efforts elsewhere in the future. But it is to be hoped that with the planned redevelopment of the area, we will see the creation of a greenway along the brook connecting Center Springs park and the Cheney rail trail to the Hockanum River trails.

Thank you to everyone who came out to help!
