Coastal cleanup close to home
— Volunteers Tom Wall, from left, Erney Maher and Warren Beaven and Emily Harris, watershed coordinator for the Chester River Association, show their haul Saturday after participating in the Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup at Urieville Lake. They collected three full trash bags, mostly plastic and glass beverage bottles, aluminum cans, food wrappers and pieces of plastic bags. Harris is holding a wooden post found in the brush that is believed to have come from someone’s house, she said. Saturday’s event was part of the Kent County Shoreline Cleanup campaign in partnership with the Sassafras River Association and Kent County Public Works.
