Marsh cleaning



Members of the Scarborough High School Key Club clean up a stretch of Route 1 during the annual fall cleanup of Scarborough Marsh. Scarborough Marsh Audubon Center Director Linda Woodard said there was more trash than typical on Route 1 this fall, including a number of beer cans. Twenty-two bags of trash were brought to the nature center on Pine Point Road. Woodard said an equal amount was picked up on Route 1. Cleanup volunteers never know what they will end up finding in the marsh. Aside from food wrappers and other debris, they found clothing, flip flop sandals, a couch cushion and several tires.
