Volunteers Sought for CT River Cleanup this Weekend

CT River Clean-Up

The Connecticut River Watershed Council’s (CRWC) 19th annual Source to Sea Cleanup, taking place this Friday & Saturday, September 25 & 26 (2015), will feature a number of fun activities for participants in addition to the trash cleanup part of the event.

Source to Sea Cleanup volunteers remove tons of trash along rivers, streams, parks, boat launches, trails and more in all 4 states of the Connecticut River basin (NH, VT, MA, CT). The public is invited to join the fun and be part of the effort for cleaner rivers. For more information or to find a cleanup group near you, CLICK HERE.

During the Cleanup, participants are encouraged to keep their cameras handy and snap lots of photos to submit in the Source to Sea Cleanup photo contest. Photos must be submitted through CRWC’s website: CLICK HERE. Public voting will determine the top 15 photos, which will be submitted to a panel of judges to select winners. Many great prizes have been donated by a number of companies in support of the Cleanup, including North Country Lodge & Cabins at the source of the Connecticut River in Pittsburg, NH and other great prizes from Cabela’s, Mount Washington Resort, Jiminy Peak, Adventure Park at Storrs, and more.
