1 person is interested
The Plainville Conservation Commission is hosting its annual Pequabuck River cleanup on Saturday, September 28th from 9 a.m. to noon. We will conduct the cleanup behind West Cemetery in Plainville. Volunteers may park on the gravel road that runs along the right side of the cemetery. Signs will designate the spot. Gloves, pickers, safety vests, water, and snacks will be provided. Volunteers are encouraged to wear appropriate footwear and clothing to protect from mud and other debris. We have been at this location for several years and have made really nice progress, but more works needs to be done. Volunteers of all ages are encouraged to attend. Students looking to satisfy school volunteer hours should bring any necessary paperwork with them. This will be a great opportunity to help clean up our community and have fun in the process.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
