Fall Clean Up at Ash Creek

Please join the Ash Creek Conservation Association in a coastal cleanup of the Ash Creek tidal estuary from 8:30 AM to noon on Saturday, September 17, 2011.

This cleanup event is part of the International Coastal Cleanup, which is coordinated in Connecticut by Save the Sound, a program of Connecticut Fund for the Environment.

Volunteers are needed to pick up trash and collect data for the Ocean Conservancy, which will compile information from around the world and study it to learn more about the global debris problem, educate the public, and find solutions for stopping marine debris at its source.

To join the cleanup, please meet at the driveway at 17 Eames Boulevard (17 Grovers Avenue) at 8:30 AM.
