Annual Earth Day Charles River Cleanup - Charles River Watershed Association

Thank you, volunteers! 

Thank you for dedicating your Saturday morning to a cleaner Charles River! On April 28, over 3,500 people turned out on a beautiful Saturday morning for CRWA's Annual Earth Day Charles River Cleanup. Volunteers removed over 50 tons of trash including plastic bags, bottles, styrofoam, discarded electronics, and much more.

If you led a volunteer team, please submit your cleanup report by May 11 for a chance to win 4 passes to Discovery Museum or Concept2 swag.
