Enjoyed the clean-up experience at Traders Cove. My only comment was that a lot of effort was put in to wood removal. All wood will rot and return to nature, which is preferable to being placed in a landfill, where it is forever lost. I would recommend that efforts be channelled into non-biodegradables such as plastics and styrofoam.
Thought of children’s plastic toboggans after I got home. This would have made T
Trader’s Cove clean up easier–we could have dragged items out on sleds instead of by hand or by canoe!
