Volunteer Tree Planting at Dana Dam Removal Site

Join us!

Come plant a tree (or shrub) at the Dana Dam Removal site! Join Save the Sound, Trout Unlimited, Town of Wilton, and other partners as we restore native vegetation for fish and wildlife along the Norwalk River at Wilton’s Merwin Meadows Park. If we have extra hands and time, we may also clear invasive plants from the project area.

Please register by Friday, April 19, for planning purposes. However… late registrants are welcome! 🙂 Meeting location will be provided in confirmation email upon registration.
