Source To Sea Cleanup On River Road

On September 24,  35 hard-working volunteers removed many bags of trash, a mattress, 5 tires, several coolers, discarding clothing, and many other items from River Road and the shore of the Connecticut River near the decommissioned sewage treatment plant. Shown here is about ½ of the total of the Jonah Center’s haul. Many other organizations and companies sponsored similar work parties as part of the Connecticut River Conservancy’s larger Source to Sea Cleanup event along the entire Connecticut River. Thanks to everyone who came out for this effort on September, to Middletown’s Department of Public Works that disposed of all the trash collected, and to CRC’s new River Steward, Rhea Drozdenko.
