NRCM teamed up with Lamey Wellehan and Baxter Brewing for a fun morning of plogging—picking up litter and walking/jogging—in Lewiston/Auburn.
We met at the parking area of Baxter Brewing and after a few words from Lamey Wellehan and NRCM, participants departed at 11:00 a.m. to plog until noon. Here is the trail map. Walkers and runners were welcome.
We returned to Baxter Brewing at noon to grab a bite to eat. NRCM Sustainable Maine Outreach Coordinator Chrissy Adamowicz presented a 20-minute documentary, Plastic Ocean, followed by a talk about our efforts reducing plastics around Maine. During this time, Baxter Brewing generously donated $1/drink to NRCM’s efforts reducing pollution in Maine.
This walk/jog and litter collection was great for all abilities and all ages. This event was free and open to the public.
