The Farmington River
Watershed Association’s 26th Annual Farmington River Clean-up is set for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 5.
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, Canton, Farmington, Granby, Simsbury and
Windsor. Garbage bags and gloves are provided to all participants, through
generous donations from local businesses and stores.
After the Clean-up, volunteers are invited to FRWA’s headquarters, at 749 Hopmeadow St., Simsbury, for a family picnic where refreshments, sandwiches and pizza will be served.
