Volunteers Needed! September 29, 10 AM-2 PM – Farmington River Cleanup

Want to spend a morning outside, on the banks of a beautiful river or stream, helping to make it look even better?  Every year FRWA hosts a River Cleanup along the banks of the Farmington River from Winsted to Windsor. It’s a great opportunity to do something wonderful for your river.

We will provide all the supplies for the big day (gloves and bags), as well as snacks including sandwiches from Antonio’s and pizza from Little City Pizza. We are on the lookout for pick-up trucks or other large vehicles that can help us get trash to the dumpsters donated by Waste Material Trucking Company of Unionville.

So where will you be? We do need lots of volunteers! If you are part of another group that might be interested, please let us know. Join us to meet your watershed neighbors and help us keep your neighborhood clean; it’s a great opportunity to make new friends. Please call FRWA at 860-658-4442 or email apetras@frwa.org to register.
