East Haddam's Annual Town Wide Clean Up - Saturday April 2, 2016

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 2, 2016.

The goal of these organizations is to coordinate an annual effort to pick up the streets, lakes, streams, and other public access areas in the Town of East Haddam. Would your organization or individuals in your organization be willing to participate? We are in search of families and groups to pick up sections of the streets in which they live on. Is there a section of town that you or your group would like to take over the stewardship? Could you and your neighbors adopt a street?

This event has been 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. 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.

We plan to start the pickup at 8:00 a.m. If you wish to join our groups, meets us at the East Haddam Town Hall on Town Street at 8:00 a.m. to pick up garbage bags or start from your own street. Please wear bright colors – hunter’s orange works – and bring work gloves. Materials can be brought directly to the transfer station.

At the conclusion of this pick up day, an invitation is extended to all participating 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. At this time 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.
