2014 Work Day Date Announced: OCTOBER 25

We've started planning the 2014 Work Day, which will once again take place at Riverfront Park. This years site will be immediately adjacent to the 2013 site (to the east of the 2013 site running toward Main Street, and to the south of the Main St park entry path).

A lot of good was done in a short time during the 2013 event. It was a very satisfying experience for all of us who volunteered.

Did last years volunteers really make a difference? Here's what Christian Marks, Ph.D., Floodplain Forest Ecologist, The Nature Conservancy had to say about the result:

"Awesome effort. It was an impressive job! I think it is the largest area that I have seen cleared of bittersweet anywhere in the watershed. Great job! With the vines cut the floodplain forest canopy in the park should be able to grow back well."

Please look for 2014 Work Day announcements in The Glastonbury Citizen, Glastonbury Life, and posted around town.

You can also ask to be added to our Glastonbury Bittersweet Battlers Newsletter which will share registration and other event information by sending a request to

Updates will be posted at this site as the event date approaches. Thanks in advance for your interest!
