Adopt-a-Road Cleanup – June 2010

Thanks to the 16 members who came out on June 19 to help the club participate in the Renfrew County Adopt-a-Road program.

EOTB has adopted 2 km of Hwy 508 leading into Munfords in Calabogie. We use this road so often on the way to so many trails and to camp, it only makes sense that we try to help keep it beautiful.

2 km doesn’t sound like much but on a hot day, under attack by ants, wading through long grass, thistles and brush, it’s a lot of work! In the end the work was done, both sides, and we followed up with lunch at Polly’s Little Shanty in Calabogie.

The neighbours were happy to see us: one drove home and came back a few minutes later with tomato stakes primed with nails aka “garbage sticks” to make it go a little quicker. Thanks!
