Earth Month Clean-Ups

Green Falls Trail Clean Up sponsored by Friends of Pachaug Forest & The Last Green Valley: Saturday, April 20, 9:00 AM- 12:00 PM. Join Friends of Pachaug Forest, Inc. as we team up with community volunteers to clean up the hiking trails in the Green Falls section of Pachaug State Forest. Strong winds combined with freezing rain and wet snow over the past winter dropped many trees and branches on trails and there is considerable brush as well as trash from litterbugs to be removed. We will be removing trash in and around the park on trails, roadways and from the water. A limited amount of hand tools including rakes and brush cutters will be available, but you’re encouraged to bring your own. Make sure to bring work gloves, (nitrile gloves and trash bags will be provided for trash pickup) wear heavy boots and bring tick repellent.  Following cleanup, we will meet back at the beach to enjoy snacks, iced water and conversation. Feel free to bring a bag lunch as we relax and enjoy the afternoon together with “friends”.  Live music will be provided by local musician and songwriter Jonny Debit! If you have questions or to volunteer to help please contact: Michael Lane, Director of Operations at 860-861-5404 or via email at mike.fopf@outlook.com  Check Friends of Pachaug Forest Facebook page for cancellation or updated.

**Attn Scouts: Badges will be provided to members of scouting troops who participate in the Green Falls clean up event. Please RSVP as soon as possible to: susan.fopf@outlook.com so we ensure we have the proper number of badges!

Community Conversation: Our Vision for Voluntown

On April 24th at 6:00 PM at Voluntown Elementary School the Board of Selectmen will be hosting Community Conversation: Our Vision for Voluntown. The intent of this workshop is to engage Voluntown residents and community members in a conversation as to where they see Voluntown 5 to 10 years from now. Over the next couple of weeks we will be presenting surveys, and other conversation starters that relate to the April 24th event.
