The 14th annual Green River Cleanup will be on September 23, 2017 from 9 am to 3 pm. This event is part of the 21st Annual Connecticut River Source to Sea Cleanup, which will be held on the 22nd (for school groups) and 23rd of September, 2017 (for everyone else!).  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 CRC 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.
