Meet a local fisherman

We met Sean this week fishing near mother sycamore.  We spoke with him for a few minutes.  He is thankful for the work BRWC/FOB has done to clean up the site. He’s lived in Manville most of his life and remembers when the area was used as a dump.

Sean carries out what he carries in such as his coffee cups and fishing line.  We appreciate his support by not littering the area so others can enjoy its beauty.

We are located at 100 New River Rd, Manville, adjacent to the bike path. Come in and walk around and say ‘hi’ to Sean if you see him.
