This is another planned clean-up of the Penobscot River and its feeder streams in Brewer. Last year was our sixteenth consecutive year and was very challenging due to the pandemic. We had a small socially distant group, but we still made an effort and collected lots of trash and debris from our normal section along the railroad track passing through town.
Once again this will be an effort of Geocachers from Maine and beyond to do some serious CITO in the City of Brewer Maine All interested in helping can meet at the posted coordinates at 8:00 AM. Equipment will be handed out and then we will go to our designated areas to begin clean up at 9:00. The clean-up goes until around 12:00. From 12:00 to 1:00 PM that afternoon we will regroup at the starting point for a catered picnic lunch to show recognition for our efforts. This is a wonderful opportunity to give to a community. There have been new walking trails added along the river. Please come and show what geocachers can do to give back to the environment and the community.
There will be a rain date one week later on May 15th. I will make an announcement if it changes so check here often for updates or if you have posted a will attend you will see an announcement. This will also earn you the spring CITO souvenir from Groundspeak.
