Good Ole Boys Bass Club
Central New York
Our BIGGEST 2010 conservation project is the adoption of many of the boat launches and fishing access's around central New York. We have many of our club members who have "adopted" these sites and will be visiting them every three weeks of so from now through November to pick up and properly dispose of the trash that is dropped at these sites. We are now placing "fishing line recycling" containers at these sites.
The year has just started and already our members have been out and cleaning up. The reports are coming in and we have picked up trash at most of the sites. Many of the sites were not very trashy, but two of them were "dumps". At one, our member picked up 5 kitchen garbage bags of trash and at the last launch site our member collected 8 large trash bags full. "The first is the worst" is our motto. From now on, these sites will be easy.
We will be taking some pictures throughout the year, so stop back often as we update this page.
