Source to Sea Day Six on the Androscoggin River
I did two legs of the Androscoggin River Watershed Council’s Source to Sea event..so far. Hopefully I will get to do a few more days. These are pictures are from my second trek…from Shelburne NH to Gilead ME. It really was a beautiful day and a great stretch of the river.
The Androscoggin River used to be one of the most polluted rivers in the United States. Twenty years ago you could smell the river from a distance and children grew up being told to stay away from it’s shores. The Source to Sea event helps to highlight this river and the efforts taken to clean it up.
I highly recommend this event and spending time on this beautiful water.
