It’s Time for 2022 Cleanups and Greenups!
Up to $500 Available for Projects in the Corridor
It’s almost time to cleanup and green up The Last Green Valley National Heritage Corridor. The Last Green Valley, Inc. (TLGV) has committed cleanup and green up funds for 2022 to help organizations and municipalities organize events.
The program is funded, in part, thanks to the support of bankHometown. bankHometown has been a supporter of TLGV since 2008 and has sponsored the cleanup program since 2019.
TLGV is expanding the program this year to include efforts to plant pollinator gardens or eradicate invasive species harming the region’s ecosystem. In the last 10 years, 11,498 volunteers have collected 504,003 pounds of trash from parks, rivers and roadways throughout The Last Green Valley National Heritage Corridor thanks to the funding. Organizations and municipalities in The Last Green Valley National Heritage Corridor can request up to $500 in funding. Those outside the corridor, but still in the Thames River watershed, can request up to $250 in funding.
