Volunteers enjoy 'a little bit of archaeology' at Napa River cleanup

June 23, 2019by ncdea

CALIFORNIA, Napa County RCD – An abandoned shopping cart, rubber chicken, drug paraphernalia and window blinds might not be the first things that come to mind when you think of Napa’s scenic river and Vine Trail.

A dozen volunteers found those items and more while hunting for trash near Third Street and Soscol Avenue in downtown Napa on Saturday morning. Organizers with the Napa County Resource Conservation District handed out rubber gloves and trash pickers to volunteers, and taught volunteers how to sort trash from recycling.

“It’s a little bit of archaeology as well as cleanup,” said Lake Berryessa resident Marc Pandone as he walked along the river, admiring bits of old glass bottles and items.
