Join PRWC and the Woodbury Conservation Commission as we spend a morning beautifying our river and roadways in Southbury and Woodbury.
On April 14, we are going to clean up some of the mess this snow-less winter has left behind. Without any snowpack, trash and litter has been especially visible along roadsides as well as in our rivers and streams and along their banks.
With your help, we will pick up the trash, recycle what we can and responsibly get rid of the rest of it. We will do as much as the available volunteers allow. The more volunteers we can muster, the more help we can offer.
Volunteers interested in helping in Woodbury should plan to meet at Hollow Park at 8:30 a.m. Saturday April 14; the Conservation Commission will lead the effort here.
Those wanting to help in Southbury should meet at Platt Farm on Flood Bridge Road at 8:30 a.m.; the PRWC will be leading at this site.
From each gathering location, teams will be sent out to sites in need of clean-up. Volunteers are invited to regroup back at their starting location for lunch.
In addition to the sites we will conquer, residents are encouraged to clean up along the roads, rivers, and natural areas near their homes. A little work on one person’s part can add up to a big difference! If you are not sure where your efforts would be best served, you can contact PRWC and we can direct you to places in need of a little TLC.
For those that plan to join the effort on April 14, we ask that you please register in advance so we can plan accordingly for lunch.
When you sign up, we will also let you know what you should bring with you so you are prepared for the day. To volunteer, or if you need more information, please contact us by phone at 203-263-0076 or email email@example.com.
The Pomperaug watershed is a precious gift we all share; let’s not take it for granted.
