Help Needed for Farmington River Clean-Up

The Farmington River Watershed Association’s (FRWA) 25th Annual Farmington River Clean-up is set for Saturday, September 29, from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The Clean-up is a community event designed to get people and groups of all ages involved in cleaning up litter along the banks of the Farmington River and its tributaries.  Several meeting sites will be actively cleaning the banks of the River in Avon, Barkhamsted, Bloomfield, Burlington, Farmington, Granby, Simsbury and Windsor. Garbage bags and gloves are provided to all participants thanks to donations from local businesses and stores.

After the Clean-up, volunteers are invited to FRWA’s headquarters, 749 Hopmeadow Street, Simsbury, for a family picnic. Refreshments, sandwiches and pizza will be served.  

For more information and to register for a specific site, call 860-658-4442, ext 0 or see FRWA.org. The Farmington River Watershed Association, founded in 1953, is a private, non-profit, conservation organization dedicated to preserving and protecting the 81-mile Farmington River and its 609 square-mile watershed.
