CLEAN­ING UP THE RIVER:

The Glengarry News - - Front Page -

Dive mas­ter Ron Mac­Don­ald, pres­i­dent of the Se­away Val­ley Divers, holds an old square face gin bot­tle, part of a haul of un­der­wa­ter de­bris col­lected by scuba divers on Satur­day morn­ing at the Great River Cleanup event at Lan­caster Wharf. With him is Karen Dou­glass Cooper from the St. Lawrence River In­sti­tute of En­vi­ron­men­tal Sciences which co-or­ga­nized the event with the South Lan­caster Fish and Game Club. Lisa Good­ier, left, a volunteer with Blue Fish Canada, trav­elled from Ot­tawa for the cleanup and Lan­caster skip­per Wayne Woods vol­un­teered his 22-foot pon­toon boat as a dive launch and barge. The volunteer divers hauled up, among other trash, tires, a rug, bot­tles, metal de­bris, and build­ing ma­te­ri­als. The good news is that divers found less un­der­wa­ter de­bris than ex­pected on the first Great River Cleanup visit to Lan­caster Wharf and Glen­garry Cairn.
