On Saturday May 14, 2011 The Seventh Annual Still River Waterway and Greenway Cleanup will take place starting at 8 am at Larsen’s Farm on Junction Road in Brookfield, Connecticut. The Still River Cleanup is one of the largest single volunteer efforts in Fairfield County. Over the last six years we have 144,000 pounds of trash, 250 tires, and filled - twelve 10 Yard Dumpsters. This year the cleanup will focus entirely on the Brookfield and part of the New Milford section of the greenway and waterway. Volunteers will work on collecting and removing trash and other debris along the way.  Volunteers will be fed lunch. You can go to our website ( Connecticut Water Trails – Upcoming Events web page) for more information or you can contact us by email at STILLRIVERCLEANUP@HOTMAIL.COM

We were just there documenting and cleaning up. 3 weeks in a row, 4/30 was the pre-float obstruction removal, 5/7 Greenway cleanup. An amazing 7 hours. Great stories, inspiration, leaders, sponsors + crazy finds including a Cott bottle from the 1950s with painted labels. 3 land teams + 3 water teams combined to comb 15 ft from the watercourse + worked in tandem to ship volunteers across the streams + haul garbage to various drop off points + dumpsters. Pix to be posted on our Facebook page Monday.
