Did you know that Hamden is in the Long Island Sound watershed? Be part of something BIG when you help out at Save the Sound's Oak Street Beach Cleanup in West Haven -- part of the International Coastal Cleanup. Meet HLCT Board Members Willow and Jim Sirch at Stowe's Seafood at 10am. We'll provide the gloves, bags, and tally sheets. We'll keep track of all the different kinds of trash we pick up to help scientists better understand how trash affects our shorelines. You'll be joining people all around the world volunteering to clean their local beaches. Rain date: Sunday, Sep. 29, same time. Check back here if in doubt.
Thanks to everyone who joined us this past weekend for our Monarchs and Milkweeds celebration at the Joseph C. Lee Urban Oasis pollinator garden on the Farmington Canal Trail. We heard from HLCT Board Member Jim Sirch about monarchs and how they are doing, as well as helpful tips on planting for pollinators. Everyone received a special pollinator plant to take home, along with informational materials. A few hardy volunteers even helped install a few additional pollinator plants. Thanks for your support!
