2018 Events Information

Conservation Commission Events

 
Quinnipiac River Cleanup

The Plainville Conservation Commission will hold their annual clean-up event for the Quinnipiac River on Saturday, September 15, 2018, from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m.  The site will be at Trumbull Park and the group will set up by the baseball field.  The Southington Land Trust will volunteer with us. This should enable us to get a bigger volunteer effort going and cover more area along this portion of the Qunnipiac River.   The event has also been posted to the Plainville Talks website.  PCC, (Plainville Conservation Commission), has supplies, gloves, tools, garbage bags, etc.  If you have a favorite pair of gloves, or a tool that you feel will be helpful, please don't hesitate to bring it along.  We will have water and snacks available. Please wear appropriate clothing such as long pants, long sleeve shirts, boots, (please no flip-flops) and socks.  Remember that we will be in areas that have ground cover and ticks may be in those areas.  Students who need volunteer hours can use this time to garner them.  Please bring your sheet showing your hours.  Any member of the PCC can approve your time.  We can use any time that anyone might have available to help in the clean-up.  Hope to see you there!
