2018 Season Wrap

A HUGE thanks as usual to all the great volunteers who worked so hard to make the river a cleaner, more beautiful place to be for humans, plants, animals, fish and reptiles, insects and invertebrates living in and out of the waterways.

The river is a beautiful, lively space for us all to share, to delight in, where we can connect with nature, quietly sit near and appreciate life, our world and be grateful for all we have.  Thank you for all your work.

We look forward to seeing you in the spring for the 20th Annual Thames River Clean Up on Saturday April 20th, 2019!

Due to the snow that likely covered the garbage we'd hoped to cleanup, we've decided to CANCEL tomorrow's (Saturday, March 3rd) cleanup.

We hope to be able to cleanup the Dingman Creek site before too long. We encourage you to watch this site and our Facebook page for more information regarding future cleanups.
