2020 Greenspace Report

Clifton Street River Garden is beautifying and maintaining the plantings at the Clifton Street Canoe launch. This summer, volunteers continued to clean up trash and upkeep the area, though it was an uphill battle. They are also advocating for infrastructural improvement of the canoe launch, which is being washed away by rising waters. The group successfully expanded and planted the garden on the corner of Clifton and Quinnipiac, providing more habitat for native pollinators and beautifying the area.
