The Connecticut River Watershed Council's (CRWC) annual Connecticut River Source to Sea Cleanup is right around the corner, and the organization is looking for volunteers to help preserve the quality of the river and its surroundings.
The cleanup will be held on Sat., Oct. 5, and volunteers will help keep the river clean from "source to sea," with cleanups taking place from the Canadian border to the Long Island Sound.
Local residents can help out in Enfield by meeting at the Donald Barns Boat Launch on South River Street at 8 a.m. Groups are encouraged to volunteer together and contact CRWC ahead of time to keep group members together during cleanup assignments.
According to CRWC, work conducted by volunteers "will be preventing injuries to wildlife, stopping pollution from entering rivers and streams and helping to maintain a clean environment where people want to come and enjoy the river."
This is the fourteenth year of the cleanup in Enfield.
Enfield's cleanup in 2013 was responsible for the removal of 2,160 pounds of garbage.
