I am arranging a clean-up of a short section of the Rooster River in Bridgeport, CT. This section of the river is full of ducks mating and nesting right now. I would like to clean this section up and see that the ducklings have a decent chance of survival. The city and state officials have pledge their support in having the debris we remove from the river QUICKLY hauled off and dealt with properly.
We NEED support in the following ways:
Man power- These are our waterways and our wildlife nurseries. We should be willing to put in the man-hours to get this done... and more if possible.
Canoes- Canoes can help us float our the filled bags and larger debris to collection points.
Gloves- Need I explain this one. The average homeowner along this stretch of river is not going to grab trash/garbage with their bare hands.
Plastic/paper leaf bags- Obviously, once we collect the trash we'll need something to put in it.
Bottled water- Just in case someone gets thirsty
Water Safety Person- Anyone a lifeguard and willing to walk along the bank and keep our volunteers safe? Anyone know a lifeguard willing to do the same?
Anything you can do to help will make a difference!! Please PM me asap with your support.
In a marsh somewhere, nowhere near your spot.
