Registration open for Candlewood Lake cleanup

Registration is open for the annual Candlewood Lake cleanup, which will happen on May 18.

Volunteers will load boats at 8:30 a.m. from each of the town parks around Candlewood Lake and collect litter from designated points on the lake. Volunteers will then go to New Fairfield Town Park at noon to drop off all of the collected trash and for a lunch featuring food from local restaurants and vendors.

Volunteers will be brought back to their starting town park after.

Boat captains and other volunteers can register online.

Gloves and trash bags will be provided to volunteers, as well as a commemorative t-shirt. Volunteers should wear sturdy footwear to collect debris.

Registration closes when it reaches capacity or on May 13.

Every participant must register individually to ensure there is enough room on the clean up boats. Registrations for families or multiple participants will not be considered valid.
