18th Annual Earth Day Charles River Cleanup

The Charles River Watershed Association are having their 18th  Annual Earth Day Charles River Cleanup taking place on Saturday, April 29, 2017, from 9am until 12pm. 

This event, organized by Charles River Watershed Association, Charles River Conservancy, the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, the Emerald Necklace Conservancy, The Esplanade Association, Senator Will Brownsberger’s office, and Waltham Land Trust has grown exponentially since its inception in 2000 and has become one of the largest cleanup efforts in the region.  Last year, approximately 3,000 volunteers helped beautify the banks of the Charles River and its surrounding park lands in the watershed.  Volunteers from more than 100 schools, businesses, and organizations picked up litter at over 100 sites, collecting approximately 50 tons of trash.

Integral to the success of this yearly effort is the participation of many types of organizations including municipalities and community groups. The Town of Natick Conservation Commission and Charles River Watershed Association would like to invite you to take part in the Cleanup and help preserve the Charles River and its watershed. If you or a group you belong to are planning a similar cleanup event this spring (both before or on April 29, 2017) we invite you to coordinate with the Earth Day Charles River Cleanup to ensure all volunteers have a productive experience and avoid the duplication of efforts.

Please contact the Charles River Watershed Association at cleanup@crwa.org or (781) 788-0007 ext. 200 if you have any questions or need more information, or visit their Association website, www.crwa.org.
