Notes & Special Issues

The reach of Cameron Run along Eisenhower Avenue has a high rail which makes access to the stream banks difficult. The stream banks are also quite steep an lined with riprap. As the site leader I would guide volunteers a little further downstream to an opening in the railing where there is a path down to the water making the cleaning efforts a safe experience.
