A sad summer for our river

2015-Riverbank

Hello Millstone Folks. I was so sad to see what has happened to our river. Was this necessary, or wise? Canoeing by, I could see the exposed roots of the few trees that remain. It is hard to imagine that this excavation of the riverbank will not lead to erosion and degradation of the ecosystem even further. Two photos say it all. The same spot, July and September 2015.

Thank you.
