Annual River Clean-Up, October 5th

Last year, over 300 volunteers joined together to remove almost 3 tons of trash from the banks of the Farmington River, and we’ll need just as much help this year! You provide your time, and we can provide the supplies as well as lunch, coffee, apple cider, and more. If you have a pick up truck or other large vehicle, let us know; all of that trash has to get to the dumpsters somehow. Locations include Avon, Burlington/Farmington/Canton, Bristol, Simsbury and Windsor.

Main meet-up locations are the FRWA office at 749 Hopmeadow Street, Simsbury, CT and Collinsville Canoe & Kayak, 41 Bridge Street, Collinsville CT. If interested in volunteering, you may show up at either of these main locations between 10am and 1 pm to register and join in.

Call FRWA at (860) 658-4442 or email with any additional questions or to preregister at your preferred location.
