Help clean up the Long Island Sound by cleaning the waterways flowing into The Sound during the 3rd consecutive “Source to Sound” river and harbor cleanup, on Saturday, September 16, with volunteer litter clean-ups throughout Norwalk. Rain date of Sunday September 17.

“Source to Sound” is a partnership between the Norwalk River Watershed Association,

This event is an opportunity to learn about the importance of stewardship for our rivers and waterways, while making an impact in the community.

This event is scheduled for Sept. 16 as part of the Ocean Conservancy’s annual International Coastal Clean-Up Day, when millions of pounds of trash is collected by hundreds of thousands of volunteer each year around the world.

Time & Location: 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. at Heritage Park by Ann and North Water Streets by the Maritime Aquarium in South Norwalk. After the welcome, groups will clean designated areas along the Norwalk harbor focusing on Oyster Shell Park and upriver. At the end of the cleanup all trash will be gathered and weighed at the same location.

Participants will pick up supplies and meet at designated clean-up sites for a day of fun and service. Participants should dress appropriately with long pants, closed toe shoes.
