Brookside Area Cleanups
Saturday May 2, 2015, 9AM
This large snapping turtle was spotted during last Saturday's Friends of Brookside annual spring cleanup.
Twenty bags of trash were collected from Scenic Brookside Road, Longfellow Pond and the Town Forest. In addition to plastic bags, styrofoam coffee cups and broken beer bottles, notable
items pulled from the Rosemary Brook watershed area included over 50 feet of cable wire, and a can of gasoline (properly disposed of by the Fire Department).
The crew included Friends of Brookside and neighbors from Needham and Friends of the North 40.
