Coginchaug River Cleanup: Sept 29

September 21, 2007

It’s a beautiful little river, let’s clean it up!

As part of a “source to sea”effort, The Connecticut River Coastal Conservation District and the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service are organizing a Coginchaug river clean-up on Saturday, Sept. 29 from 9 AM to 12 Noon . This activity is in conjunction with a study of the Coginchaug River watershed that is underway. Volunteers should meet at Veterans Park in Middletown on Saturday morning. The city Parks Department will provide bags, gloves etc.

Here is information from the Connecticut River Watershed Council about the multi-state effort to clean up the Connecticut River and its tributaries.

Saturday September 29, 2007
Join hundreds of individuals, clubs, troops, students, and businesses to clean up the Connecticut River and its tributaries! We started doing this in 1997 to take care of our favorite local treasure. The Source to Sea Cleanup is fun and it involves people of all ages and abilities working together to do something good for their community. So mark your calendars and we’ll see you on September 29th!

CRWC coordinates events in all 4 states of the watershed on or near the date of the cleanup. We try to help groups get started and give them assistance and supplies when possible. If you’re busy on September 29, you can conduct your own cleanup on another day.

New posting today on our Jonah Center page.
