Quinnipiac River Cleanup
In 2017 the Plainville Conservation Commission's Earth Day Program, Project P.E.E.P., (Plainville Enhancing its Environment for Pollinators), was implemented. With help from the Senior Citizens Center and their volunteers, we packaged the flower and milkweed seeds. Another volunteer from the Senior Center delivered the packets to the Parks and Recreation Office, Town Hall, Plainville Library and the Senior Center. The Conservation Commission has provided a link to their gmail page. Any resident who planted their seeds and watched them grow are invited to share their photos with us. The address is email@example.com.
The Conservation Commission still has seeds left from last year that should be viable. Updates on Earth Day celebrations will be posted here.
National Trails Day
A hike to celebrate National Trails Day is being planned for the first Saturday in June, 2018. Last year the Conservation Commission led a 5.4 mile hike on part of the Metacomet Trail in the Bradley Mountain and Sunset Rock Park area. Participants were able to see all the way to Sleeping Giant State Park in Hamden from Bradley Mountain. Stay tuned for updates.
Pequabuck River Watershed Cleanup
The date for the Pequabuck River Watershed Clean-Up this year will be Saturday, September 15, 2018, which is also National Clean Up Day. This year the Plainville Conservation Commission will team up with members of the QRWA, (Quinnipiac River Watershed Association). The event will run from 9 a.m. until noon, regardless of the weather. Although the event runs for three hours, any time that you have to volunteer is valuable to us. Volunteers need to dress appropriately, i.e., boots, long pants and shirts. All tools are provided. Water and snacks provided by members of the Conservation Commission will also be available. This is a great opportunity for students looking to earn volunteer hours. Please bring your form regarding these hours to the event. Any member of the Commission can validate the form for you. Any questions you may have can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope to see you there!
