Learn more about health of local waterways
BRATTLEBORO — Kathy Urffer from Connecticut River Conservancy (CRC) and Bob Spencer from Windham Solid Waste Management District (WSWMD) welcome community members to Talk Trash! and learn more about the health of local waterways. The next Trash Talk will take place from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 12, at Whetstone Station.
Come learn about what's happening in Vermont and New Hampshire with single-use plastic, polystyrene, trash tires, where our trash goes, and how you can get involved for cleaner rivers. Join in for an informal chat over light appetizers (cash bar). Open to everyone.
"Every year during our Source to Sea cleanup we pull tons of trash out of our rivers. We've been doing this for 23 years and we are tired of trash," says CRC's River Steward Kathy Urffer. "We need to find ways to reduce our waste stream and keep trash out of our waterways. We applaud our legislators who are working to try to do something about this."
Trash Talks are free, but registration is encouraged so organizers know how many people to expect. More information and link to register at: https://fall-trash-talks.eventbrite.com.
