I recently visited Onota Lake in Pittsfield, Mass. and was appalled by all the trash on the ground around the picnic areas. We found it extremely upsetting that we couldn't even have our lunch without looking at trash, broken glass. Beer bottles everywhere. I would most definitely not recommend this lake to anyone, and will never return to this lake.. The association should be ashamed. This was a pathetic sight for the Berkshires. Says David Hassen
consider banning the feeding of migratory birds at Onota (and other) lakes as the effluent adds greatly to our increasing weed problem.
