Milford volunteers sought to cleanup at Silver Sands State Park
MILFORD - Volunteers are sought for a city-sponsored cleanup at a Silver Sands wetlands 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday.
The Great Creek Marsh is a vital wildlife habitat area that is littered with gas cans, fencing, backyard sheds, building debris and plastic in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, event organizer Steve Johnson said.
In November, 200 people made a huge difference in helping to clean up storm debris along Silver Beach and at a Silver Sands marsh along West Mayflower Place, Johnson said in a written statement.
Johnson is the city's open space and natural resource agent.
Volunteers are needed for an hour or more, he said.
"The marsh area is high and dry so with your help, we can begin to clear the storm debris out of this fragile wildlife habitat area and restore it to its natural state once again."

Johnson advises volunteers to dress for the weather and to bring winter work gloves. He will have a small tent and a kettle of hot water for tea and hot chocolate.
