Twelve volunteers together with refuge staff filled a dumpster with accumulated trash along the Missisquoi River Delta. This is an annual event at Missisquoi NWR and volunteers from IBM and Green Mountain Coffee Roasters help refuge staff walk and boat the river corridor picking up trash. The refuge lies at the very end of a large watershed which results in a burdensome trash load each spring. Thanks to these hard working volunteers we are able to keep up with the accumulated debris each year and improve the refuge.
