Volunteer for the 15th Annual Charles River Cleanup and make a difference this Earth Day!

In a collaboration led by CRWA, over 4,000 volunteers will work together to remove litter and debris from the Charles River and beautify its surrounding parklands in one of the nation’s largest one-day river cleanup events! Volunteers will remove trash from sites throughout the Charles River watershed from Milford to Boston.

 

Since 2000, the Charles River Watershed Association has coordinated the Annual Earth Day Charles River Cleanup each April with a collaborative of other non-profit organizations. Volunteers participate as part of more than 100 different neighborhood, school, religious, and corporate teams, as well as individually. Our volunteers remove trash and debris including television sets, bicycles, styrofoam cups, and plastic bags located in the river and on its banks at 100 sites along the 80-mile river.

At the 2013 event, CRWA estimates volunteers removed 50 tons of litter, making the Charles River cleaner, healthier, and more beautiful! The Charles River Cleanup is organized by a collaborative of groups interested in keeping the river and our communities clean and healthy, including Charles River Watershed Association, Charles River Conservancy, The Esplanade Association, Emerald Necklace Conservancy, Green Decade Newton, Senator Will Brownsberger’s Office, Waltham Land Trust and MA Department of Conservation and Recreation

The 15th Annual Earth Day Charles River Cleanup is a part of the American Rivers National River Cleanup.
