Source to Sea Cleanup

The Source to Sea Cleanup is an annual trash cleanup of the Connecticut River system – rivers, streams, parks, boat launches, trails and more. Each fall, thousands of volunteers of all ages and abilities head out to places of their choice all along the four-state watershed (NH, VT, MA, CT) to clean the Connecticut River and its tributaries on foot or by boat.

In 2017, more than 2,500 volunteers pulled over 46 tons of trash from over 249 miles of river banks and waterways. The water is cleaner, river banks are safer and wildlife are happier thanks to YOU and the generous efforts of the sponsors, businesses, watershed organizations, youth and school groups, municipalities and community members who make the event possible. Thank you!
