WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW IF YOU WANT TO SIGN UP FOR A CLEANUP.
All you need to do is bring yourself, your camping gear, food for the weekend including a bagged lunch or snacks for the cleanup. Be ready to go on the river Saturday with a positive attitude and ready for a great time helping us remove debris and litter left behind on the river and its bankings. This is a very popular river for canoe, kayaking and camping and the trash some people leave behind is unbelievable. So we need your help to clean it up and teach people that it is not okay to leave your trash behind.
We provide the canoes, all the canoe companies along the Saco River donate their canoes and shuttles to the volunteers for this project. See complete list below of the canoe companies and campgrounds involved in this event.
Volunteers must preregister for available canoes.
Saturday morning you will go to your assigned canoe company for your section of the river. WE will cover 45 miles from No. Conway,NH to Brownfield,Me.
The canoe companies will not be ready to drop canoes until after 9 am. You will disperse to your assigned sections and head out for a day on the river. You will go onto the beaches and bankings and in the river to retrieve debris and trash, You can also dive for cans, which is fun all the while making the river a better place. What will be the most unusual thing you find? You would be surprised. Look forward to seeing you all there.
Due to the fact we live in New England we need to be prepared for the weather and conditions don't forget bug spray (Just in case!!) raingear, warm clothes, bathing suits, sunscreen.
If you are a scout group I will need from each troop, your contact person name address and phone number, Troop number and city, State, age of scouts, boy or girl scouts. Email this info and any questions to Michelle at firstname.lastname@example.org. asap!
