Friends of the Saugatucket will organize several cleanups per year. Cleanups on land are family-friendly and will involve picking up trash near the river or in the watershed, which Friends of the Saugatucket will dispose of. Cleanups on the river will be for experienced adult paddlers only, who will provide their own paddle equipment. Cleanups will be advertised on FaceBook and in the local press.

Many thanks to all who helped clean up around the Saugatucket River and the rest of South Kingstown on April 24th!
You have made our town a more beautiful place to live!

Please join us, along with our partner ORCA (Ocean Recovery Community Alliance), for a fall cleanup along the Saugatucket River in downtown Wakefield.
