Sept. 9th: Volunteers Needed for Pootatuck Watershed Conservation Event

By  | 

September 9, 2017 9:00 am to 2:00 pm

The Pootatuck Watershed Association (PWA) is looking for support with marking waste water storm drains. We will be marking these drains in the Sandy Hook and Newtown areas on Saturday, September 9th from 9am-2pm, meeting at Fairfield Hills in the parking lot outside of the municipal building.  This event is to bring awareness to how important clean water is to our environment, keeping our ecosystems healthy, and especially our local brooks, streams & rivers.

The PWA is a non-profit, local organization that suppors the Pootatuck River & Deep Brook watershed http://pootatuckwatershed.org/

We would appreciate any support you could provide to this event.  It is a great way to learn about your local watershed, gain volunteer hours and meet people who are passionate about clean water restoration.

NOTE: This event requires dry, sunny weather so if it looks like it’s going to rain, we will reschedule and notify you. If you have any questions you can reach out to Neil Baldino at neil [dot] baldino [at] gmail [dot] com or to Gunnar Cedergren cedergrengb [at] gmail [dot] com
