Past Events

Park Cleanups

East Rock Park has a lot of visitors. Sometimes they sadly, leave their trash behind. We schedule cleanups, usually on Saturday mornings, to ensure the park is clean and safe for everyone. 

Planting Trees and Flowers

We sometimes plant new trees or flower bulbs and provide educational opportunities for those who want to learn more about the geology, ecology, and history of this spectacular place. 

Volunteering Opportunities

We work with a variety of local organizations to facilitate cleanup days. We have worked with The United Way, Avangrid, and Yale University's Day of Service, just to name a few! If your school, church or local group would like to join us, please contact us.
