It’s All About Hard Work, Real Fun, True Impact
The Source to Sea Cleanup is an annual trash cleanup of the Connecticut River system – rivers, streams, parks, boat launches, trails and more. Each fall, thousands of volunteers of all ages and abilities head out to places of their choice all along the four-state watershed (NH, VT, MA, CT) to clean the Connecticut River and its tributaries on foot or by boat.
In 2017, more than 2,500 volunteers pulled over 46 tons of trash from over 249 miles of river banks and waterways. Read more about the 2017 event in the Cleanup Chronicle (PDF), including the list of groups that participated and the tally of all trash pulled from the river.
The water is cleaner, river banks are safer and wildlife are happier thanks to YOU and the generous efforts of the sponsors, businesses, watershed organizations, Girl Scout and Boy Scout Troops, school groups, municipalities and community members who make the event possible. Thank you!
