It was a beautiful morning to stroll along the Connecticut River and pick up the accumulated detritus of our civilized existence. Brendan kicked it up a notch this year with volunteers from Hartford Steam Boiler, Trinity College, and the Two Rivers magnet school. With such a large group we cleaned up the riverfront between Charter Oak Park and the Riverfront Plaza in no time. This stretch of river was chosen specifically because it doesn't get officially cleaned up by the park district or city employees. Each year there are many organized cleanup events by the Connecticut River Watershed Council, called the Source to Sea cleanup. Unfortunately the true sources are the assholes that litter, but we're getting the garbage before it further fouls our waterways.

|A pile-o-trash that Brendan is proud of.|
|Because awesome. Oct 11th in Colt Park.|
