PRWA President, Mary Rydingsward, said in a press release, “The Pequabuck River Watershed Association is dedicated to protecting the Pequabuck River because a healthy community depends upon a healthy river. This cleanup will help showcase the river when people assemble in Forestville for the Annual Duck Race Sunday, May 6. The Pequabuck River is so important to our community; we’ve got to take every opportunity we can to protect it; for us and for future generations.”
