Want to make a difference in your community? Join us Saturday April 21st for the annual Charles River Cleanup! Last year, over 3,000 volunteers worked to remove 50 tons of trash along the 80 mile stretch of the Charles River from Boston to Bellingham! Please join us to pick up trash and improve the appearance of the Charles and surrounding open spaces! We provide clean-up supplies, snacks, and a free T-shirt for volunteers. Please bring your own reusable water bottle.

We’ll have interactive music making with the Ecology of Sound, face painting, games for kids and adults alike and great food from our resident food trucks. There’s also a rumor that the EPA volunteer band, the Hazardous Constituents, might make an appearance!
