Norwalk River Watershed Association
Sunday, December 8, 1PM. The Wilton Conservation Commission will host a walk at Cherry Lane Park to be led by Commissioner Colleen O’Brien. All are welcome, including dogs on leash. Following the one hour walk, there will be refreshments allowing time for everyone to enjoy chatting with neighbors and representatives of the collaborating conservation organizations that help support these walks, Wilton Garden Club, Land Conservation Trust, Norwalk River Watershed Association and Woodcock Nature Center.



Tuesday, December 18, 7PM. The Ordinance Committee of the Norwalk Common Council will hold a public hearing to discuss the proposed Plastic Checkout Bag Ban Ordinance.  After this hearing, the ordinance will go to the full council for a final vote. Please come to support this is a very important opportunity to make a huge difference in the amount of single-use plastics in our environment.   If Norwalk can do this, joining Westport, Weston, Greenwich and Stamford, many more cities and towns may follow. This ban has been organized by Skip the Plastic Norwalk and NRWA supports it. Norwalk City Hall Common Council Chambers, 3rd Floor. More information here.
