Keeping The Last Green Valley Clean and Green!

Show your love for The Last Green Valley by organizing an Earth Month or River Cleanup, Pollinator Planting or Invasive Eradication Event. Gather your family, friends, neighbors, gardeners, nature lovers and co-workers, and make a difference in your community. Along with cleanup events, groups may also host events to “green up” TLGV by enhancing pollinator habitat with native plantings or eliminating invasive species on public lands.

After approving your cleanups and greenups application, The Last Green Valley, Inc. (TLGV) will reimburse your non-profit organization or municipal, regional, state or federal agency working in the National Heritage Corridor up to $500 for expenses like: publicity, cleanup supplies such as trash bags, work gloves, small gardening tools, native seeds and plantings, and food for your volunteers. Projects outside the National Heritage Corridor, but within Thames River watershed towns, will be reimbursed up to $250. View the Thames River Watershed Map, noting the red outline of The Last Green Valley National Heritage Corridor, to determine your area's eligibility to apply for funds.
