A Clean River Makes Everyone Jump For Joy!

A Clean River Makes Everyone Jump For Joy!

posted Wednesday, August 31, 2022

Spend your morning, Saturday, Sept. 10th, helping the Black River Action Team keep the local waterways free of garbage. Stop by the BRAT's registration table at Riverside Middle School, located at 13 Fairground Road in Springfield, VT, at or close to 8 AM to sign in, pick up supplies, and select a location to tackle. Head out with a buddy to collect trash, return with your "loot" by 11 AM to help tally and sort, then clean up in time for a donated and well-deserved lunch. There will be hot dogs courtesy of the Calvary Baptist Church, and pizza provided by Domino's Pizza. Don't forget your collectible complimentary tee shirt!

Done in partnership with the CT River Conservancy's annual Source to Sea cleanup event, the 23rd Annual RiverSweep is the BRAT's signature project. To clean up on the water, please contact BRAT Director Kelly Stettner for specific locations and instructions for launching your own kayak, canoe, or small flat-bottomed boat.

Phone messages should be left at (802) 738-0456 and emails can be sent to [email protected] for questions and to discuss boating details.
