The Connecticut River Watershed Council’s 19th Annual Source to Sea Cleanup is scheduled for September 25 & 26, 2015.
The Source to Sea Cleanup is an annual trash cleanup of the Connecticut River system – rivers, streams and banks, parks, boat launches, trails and more. Each fall, thousands of volunteers of all ages and abilities head out to places of their choice all along the four-state watershed (NH, VT, MA, CT) to clean the Connecticut River and its tributaries on foot or by boat.
Hard Work, Real Fun, True Impact
In 2014, more than 2,000 volunteers pulled over 47 tons of trash from over 139 miles of river banks and waterways. Volunteers use human power and sometimes heavy equipment to pull out everything from recyclables, fishing equipment and food waste to tires, televisions and refrigerators.
