Help VRC protect & manage Bolton Potholes

VRC is working closely with the Town of Bolton, the Smilie Elementary School, neighbors, and visitors to address management issues and protect public access to the Bolton Potholes.

Swimming holes are public treasures, but only if well-managed and cared for.  Bolton Potholes needs improved management to address:

Parking • Swimming Safety • Litter • Broken Glass • Toilet Facilities • Water Quality • Privacy for changing • Trails • Vandalism • Trespassing on neighbor properties

 Join us in protecting the Bolton Potholes by September 30, 2018
