Join Charles River Watershed Association (CRWA) and partner organizations for the 16th Annual Earth Day Charles River Cleanup, where thousands of volunteers and community groups come together to beautify the banks of the Charles River from Bellingham to Boston!
This annual event provides volunteers the opportunity to contribute positively to the river’s health, while developing a connection to some of Massachusetts’ most precious natural resources that far outlasts this one-day event.
Joining a movement across the country, the Annual Earth Day Charles River Cleanup is a part of American Rivers' National River Cleanup®, which to date has removed over 4 million pounds of trash from America’s waterways.
The 16th Annual Earth Day Charles River Cleanup will take place on Saturday, April 25, 2015 at various sites on the Charles, from Bellingham to Boston. Individuals, families and groups are welcome to participate and join CRWA and partner organizations at one of three regional picnics following the event.
Cleanup supplies including gloves and trash bags will be provided and participating volunteers will receive an Official 2015 Charles River Cleanup t-shirt while supplies last.
CRWA would also like to give special recognition to the Watertown Yacht Club for providing a rest stop and refreshments for volunteers.
