It might be April First but we're not kidding!
The Moodus Sportsmen’s Club, and the East Haddam Scout Troops are sponsoring the Annual Town Wide Clean Up Day to be held on Saturday, April 1, 2017.
This has been an on-going event for at least twenty years. Tons of trash has been picked up over the years keeping our town clean. We picked the beginning of the month versus the traditional end of the month for Earth Day to avoid the growth of poison ivy along the streets and stone walls.
History: Our first major project was the removal of cars, tires, and trash from Babcock Wildlife Management Area in the 1990’s. Removal of the trash and debris keeps the Town safer for the wildlife and our pets and retains the scenic quality we all desire.
At the end, we extend our invitation to all to a picnic at the Moodus Sportsmen’s Club starting at noon and ending at 2 pm.
Traditional picnic items such as hot-dogs, baked beans, coffee and iced tea and lemonade will be served along with the seasonal bounty only a sportsmen’s club could serve.
We can inventory the items collected and discuss solutions to reduce these problems. We also will have educational information about the Town’s natural resources and outdoor recreational opportunities that are available to all.
