Friends of Canonchet Farm Complete Cleanup
Volunteers Remove 40 Tons of Asphalt
On Saturday, October 31, volunteers completed cleanup of the Beech Grove and a designated area adjacent to Little Neck Pond at Canonchet Farm in Narragansett. Over the course of four work days, 58 volunteers organized by the Friends of Canonchet Farm used shovels and wheelbarrows to remove 40 tons of asphalt improperly spread in a beech tree grove and in an area between the Anne Hoxsie Lane parking lot and wetlands. The project was a joint effort on the part of the Friends of Canonchet Farm and the Town of Narragansett to respond to a Coastal Resource Management Council (CRMC) complaint about the use of recylced asphalt to grade portions of this town-owned land.
Many thanks to all the volunteers and congratulations on a job well done!
