This Earth Day, help clean up a Boston landmark- the Charles River!
The Charles River Watershed Association invites members of the community to unite and pick up trash at over a hundred different cleanup spots along the Charles River and its tributaries. Over a hundred different non-profit organizations and groups join each other on this eco-friendly escapade on Earth Day. This event is ideal for those interested in keeping that dirty water we love so much, clean, healthy, and breathtaking! It has been estimated that past efforts removed fifty tons of garbage from the Charles River every year, and this year, the community strives to clean it up again!
The Charles River Cleanup will take place on Earth Day, April 20, 2013, from 9:00am-12:00pm. Volunteers are able to choose which region they prefer to clean by visiting http://www.crwa.org/crcleanup/cleanupmap.html. Cleanup supplies, snacks, and a free t-shirt will be provided to those who help!
