To the Editor;
On December 2, 2023, I arrived at Howland Marsh to assist the Sippican Land Trust with trail maintenance. I was shocked to see so many empty beer cans thrown in the bushes across the street on land trust property, so I put on my gloves, grabbed my pickers, and removed four bags of trash from the property. Most of the trash consisted of empty beer cans of the same brand, but there was also a fire alarm and some take-out containers. It is disturbing to see how little respect was shown by the litter tossers to the land trust property, and the town of Marion. One would expect those who consume adult beverages to act like adults and place their trash in the appropriate trash containers.
