Far Mill River Clean-up 10/30/10

The Nutmeg Chapter of Trout Unlimited and the Shelton Land Conservation Trust are joining forces to clean up trash along the Far Mill River on Saturday 10/30/10 at 9:00.

[EDIT by TERESA: There was confusion about the starting point because of out-dated info on the Trouts Unlimited webpage. The event will at Beard Sawmill Road (near Wells Hollow Farm) under the Route 8 bridge, NOT at Rt 110.]

They are meeting at Rt. 110 along the Stratford/Shelton border. Probably some people will go in at the Far Mill Trailhead behind ASF Sports (opposite the dump). While this isn't a trail work party, cleaning the river is a good cause & it's worth supporting these two organizations if you can help out.

They will meet where the Far Mill flows beneath rte. 110 near the Stratford / Shelton border. Bring gloves and insect repellent. We are in need of volunteers to pick up trash and debris.

The Shelton Land Trust has offered to join us on this clean-up effort and we look forward to working with them. For more information, contact
