The 13th annual Green River Cleanup will be on September 24, 2016 from 9 am to 3 pm. This event is part of the 20th Annual Connecticut River Source to Sea Cleanup, which will be held on the 23th (for school groups) and 24th of September, 2016 (for everyone!).  Come be part of this great area event.  All are welcome, including schools, worship groups, local businesses, and lovers of the river. The Green River watershed is one of the most pristine in southern New England. A pure source of grade A water, the Green River supplies Greenfield with a significant amount of its water needs. Each year hundreds of river lovers from all walks of life come to the cleanup and enjoy hard work, friendship, food, and music and the great feeling you get from caring and making a difference.  Call the CRWC at 413-772-2020 ext. 207 to sign up, donate, report a site that needs attention, or to find out more.

 

THERE WILL BE A GREAT CELBRATION AFTERWARDS WITH DONATED FOOD AND MUSIC BY Tuff Riddim International.
