NORWALK, Conn. --- Help clean Long Island Sound by cleaning the water flowing into it during Source to Sound on Saturday with volunteer litter cleanups in New Canaan and Norwalk.
Source to Sound is a partnership between Grace Farms in New Canaan, The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk, Norwalk Community College and the office of Norwalk Mayor Harry Rilling. The event is an opportunity to learn about the importance of stewardship for our waterways while making an impact in the community.
It’s scheduled as part of the Ocean Conservancy’s annual International Coastal Clean-Up Day. More than 18 million pounds of trash were collected by nearly 800,000 volunteers around the world on Clean-Up Day last year.
Source to Sound starts at 10 a.m. at the Commons at Grace Farms, 365 Lukes Wood Road, New Canaan. Participants will test the water in Grace Farms' ponds, which are the headwaters of the Five Mile River. Then they’ll pick up supplies and meet at designated cleanup sites for a day of fun and service.
The event ends at 2 p.m. at the main entrance of The Maritime Aquarium, where all the collected trash will be weighed. Participants should dress appropriately with long pants and comfortable, closed-toe shoes. Advance registration is appreciated. Click here to sign up.
