CONTAMINATED CLEAN UP RESTARTING

THE CLEAN UP of lead shot began in October 2015. It was scheduled to be completed by June 2016, but now completion is expected in late spring or early summer of 2017. There will be intermittent tree cutting/removal plus a variety of other types of activity while the lead is being removed. This will limit access on cross roads through the contaminated area and limit parking at the cabin.

PLEASE BE PATIENT WHILE WE WORK TO IMPROVE THE LAND PRESERVE FOR YOUR FUTURE ENJOYMENT!

Thank you.

Ride the Shetucket River

The Town of Sprague in will resume the wildly popular Ride the Shetucket events for 2017. Once monthly during the warm weather season and depending on the natural water level of the river the Town of Sprague will provide a free shuttle between River Park and Scotland Dam. Participants can put in any time between 10:00 and 12:00.  You can ride the river as many times as you wish during that time frame.  The ride is 4 miles long and takes approximately 2 hours.

Dates for 2017 will be announced here.

Since Ride the Shetucket is dependent on the natural water level, check the Town website prior to the event for any cancellation postings. www.ctsprague.org


Paddlers need to have PFD’s and a distress whistle.
